This is probably the last batch of photos I’ll share from my trip to New York. It’s already March – I’ll be back in NYC again in a month for the Easter long weekend! These photos are of the beautiful 9/11 Memorial, which consists of two large fountains that are dug into the footprints of the original World Trade Center twin towers, with the victims’ names engraved on panels surrounding them. I believe this truly was the best idea for the memorial. The only word I can really give to it is, beautiful. Visiting the site was quite heart-wrenching; I can’t even begin to imagine what it must be like for the friends and family of the victims. Seeing the gaping holes where the towers once stood, with water flowing into them, brought a tear or two to my eyes. Not much else to be said about these photos except that they were actually taken on my cell phone. I wouldn’t normally share cell phone photos, but they don’t generally allow “professional” camera equipment into the memorial. If you visit New York, be sure to pay your respects here. It really is an emotional and touching experience.
