9/11 Memorial

When we started walking towards the 9/11 memorial, after passing security, Jonathan Edelstein and I were having a conversation about the tragedy that happened. When we saw the memorial I stopped for a second, mid sentence, and got the chills. Pictures do the memorial very little justice. Before I saw it up close and personal I thought it was just a big wishing well type of thing. But when you actually see it and how big it is you start to realize how big the twin towers really were. And thats just the size of the foundation we were looking at. The actual towers seemed like they were never ending, as if they were heading towards the heavens. The people in the buildings and on the planes have reached the heavens and this memorial is here as a tribute to their lives. Each one of them has a story and each of those names had a person behind them with an actual life.

The architectural design of the memorial is amazing and everything built must have been for a reason and I think was intended to have meaning. I don’t know what that meaning is exactly but for me it is sort of a mirror of what was. Just like from ground level you could never see the top of the towers, if you are standing on ground level you cannot see the bottom of the inside of the memorial.

Heres a video I took at the site.
