New York City Visit

We just returned from visiting family outside of New York City.  One rainy day we ventured into the Big Apple to tour the 9/11 Memorial and Plaza.  The rainy day was befitting the somber feeling one feels looking at all of the names of the brave Americans who lost their lives that terrible day.  Inside the museum, there are various artifacts from the original towers, as well as photos of every person who were lost.  Every American should make it a point to visit the Memorial just once in their life.  We shall never forget!
