9/11 Museum and Memorial – Photos from our Summer 2014 visit

“The terrorists-those nineteen people, with hundreds or maybe thousands behind them-did the worst thing you can possibly imagine. But tens of millions of people did the right thing…On 9/11, all the hatred and murder could not compare with the weight of love, of bravery, of caring.”
― David Levithan, Love is the Higher Law
