I guess not going, was a way of not facing the the pain associated with that day…isn’t it funny how our minds can make us rationalize not making important decisions? That’s why I went!
While waiting in line to go in (it’s was free…all they asked for was a donation but I would recommend making a reservation first) everyone was unnaturally quiet, it was a very somber experience.
I must say the memorial is absolutely beautiful but it felt like a cemetery. You could feel the pain from the lost souls and those loved ones who visited and left their tears on the grounds.
I couldn’t stay long but I took a few pictures, prayed & shed some tears for those who lost their lives that day.
Everyone in the world will remember 9/11 and 2977 victims of this violent crime. We will NEVER forget!
