A story of survival and hope – the Survival Pear Tree at the World Trade Center


Survivor Pear Tree at ground zero World Trade Center

On this anniversary of 9/11, it’s important to remember not only those we lost that day but also the stories of hope and inspiration. Such is the story of the pear tree that remarkably survived in the rubble after the World Trade Center towers came down.

BBDO Worldwide released this short commemorative film featuring a little-known tree found at the World Trade Center site as a way of highlighting the resilient nature of the city in the aftermath of the tragedy. Narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, this animated film is touching and inspiring. Watch and enjoy and celebrate the miracles that surround us.
