NYC’s 9/11 Memorial is Sacred Site

Every American should make the trek to visit the 9/11 Memorial, in my opinion. Located in New York City, in the area where the Twin Towers used to stand, is a footprint honoring the memory of 2,977 victims who lost their lives as a result of the September 11 terrorists’ attack on our nation. Step into the plaza, a field of shade trees, where the sound of water draws you to those massive gaping footprints. Two very large reflecting pools, containing water that falls into a bottomless black hole, reside there. Edging the Memorial pools are bronze panels inscribed with the names of every person who died, lest we never forget. The Museum, located mostly underground, has been described as an “archaeological site of Ground Zero.” It truly remains a tribute to the past as well as a hope for the future.

  1. I was there 3 years ago. It was the first time I visited NYC again after the attacks. The last time before that was September 99 exactly 2 years prior to the attacks. Standing at the monument made mixed feelings come up. It was so moving and I couldn’t visit the exhibition.

  3. It would be quite profound and poignant. I don’t think anyone could avoid crying, Gail. I cried at JFK and the unknown soldier flame. I was in elementary school the first time, then junior high the second time. 😒
