The 9/11 Memorial Site: A Photo Essay

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to pay honor to the 9/11 victims by visiting the Memorial site at the World Trade Center. Despite not knowing any of the victims or families, the tragedy still gives me a feeling of deep sorrow, as I’m sure it does for most of us. After all, we were all affected by this in one way or another. I’ve also been captivated by the stories of heroism during and after the tragedy.

Following are some images from the 9/11 Memorial, taken mostly at the South Pool area. For those who haven’t yet made the homage, I hope it conveys a little bit of a sense of what it’s like to be there.
