NYC, day 2 (afternoon)
I knew visiting the 9/11 Memorial would be emotional. It's that 1 thing in your life that you will remember exactly where you were and what you were doing.
There's still a lot of construction.
Firefighters or first responders memorial...I can't remember for sure.
Freedom Tower. The observation deck opened last Friday. I'm hoping if we have another band trip here in 4 years that that is on the schedule.
There's just no way to describe the feeling you get listening to the water...
Or touching the names...
He was 3 1/2 on that awful day...like many, all I wanted to do is hug him...and now I was visiting it with him.
Each anniversary we'd see the long ramp to the bottom, where the families would remember. This is that spot. Along with the handwritten memories left by the firefighters.
The survivors staircase and the first thing placed in the memorial due to it's size and weight!
The twisted metal is just mind boggling.
Emotional, heart wrenching and beautiful...
What you don't see are the areas that no pictures are allowed. Where the tears immediately start flowing. We did not have enough time...3 days would not be enough time. It's a memorial not to miss!
