"Richard Moe, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, says that one result of saving historic buildings and sites is revitalizing communities. Preservationists, he believes, play an important role in protecting the cherished places and symbols that terrorists realize are the glue of American society."Think for a moment about where the blows fell on Sept. 11," he said in addressing the recent National Preservation Conference in Providence, R.I. 'Not on missile bases or factories or power plants or shipyards. No, the targets were people and buildings that symbolize America's military and economic strength.'"
