Reflecting on 9/11, Fifteen Years Later
During a recent visit to New York City, the one place I needed to see was the 9/11 Memorial. What an emotional visit it was.
What struck me most was the respect visitors had for that sacred piece of land. Nobody spoke. It was as if you were taken to another dimension, reading the names of ALL who perished on 9/11 and from the earlier terror attack in 1993.
To this day, I can't bring myself to think of the horror those poor souls must have gone through on that beautiful Tuesday morning 15 years ago. Not just in New York City, but in Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania. For me, it's too painful. However, the 9/11 Memorial Museum is a wonderful reminder of the strength and resilience of the survivors, first responders and this country.
I took this video at the Memorial Plaza and panned up to the brand new One World Trade Center. When you watch it, listen...the only sound you'll hear is the waterfall. The silence is powerful.
