While Jodi and Jordan were here I was able to go with them to the 9/11 memorial that opened this last Fall. Pat have had tried multiple times to go and see it but we things always came up. It was such a heart wrenching and breath taking experience all at one.
The fountains were built in the footprints of the old towers and are outlined with the names of the individuals who died in a tower, a plane or at the Pentagon.
It was hard because as you passed by thousands of names, I tried not to think of them as just "names" because I knew there were families and loved ones associated with each person. It was hard to imagine the tragedy that took place in that very place a little over 10 years ago.
