Remembering 911




When we were in NYC in July we were able to visit the newly completed 911 Memorial which had just opened to the public.


I wasn't sure that I would be able to handle it but I am so very grateful that we all went to this sacred ground to pay our respects.



Back in 1977, I visited some friends in NYC and remember how excited and proud they were to take me to visit The World Trade Center which was just a few years old.


I was struck that I had been in this very spot soon after it had been constructed and now here I stood  gazing into the dramatic memorial fountains that fall down into the footprints of the twin towers.

 
I took in some deep breaths, allowing myself to be fully present in the energies all around me as I waited to enter.



New York City's skyline was once changed because of an act of terror but now rising from the site of the original complex in Lower Manhattan stands One World Trade Center, a 1,776 foot gleaming structure of glass and steel that declares,
"WE'RE  BACK."


I highly recommend a visit.


 It is a hauntingly beautiful and moving memorial.

We were there in June for my niece's wedding and went to the memorial (did not have time for the museum). It was so very moving.
(Glad you're back with you blog!)(Great to see you at the graduation.)
