9-11 Memorial Site
Being there was a surreal experience. I kept trying to imagine what that day had been like...the images I had seen on the news shows came flooding back. It was an emotional and sobering sight- reading the names of some of the ones lost that day...seeing how the names go on and on around the monument.
Seeing the survivor tree that was saved from the rubble and nurtured back to health and replanted on the site is a fitting reminder of how life goes on for us-just as the buildings going up there are a reminder of how we strive to rise above our loss.
May God bless our country and those lost on that day, and all the families and friends left to grieve!
