The day was surprisingly chilly, the construction in lower Manhattan made the bus trip circuitous and lengthy, and the security was as tight as an airport. In spite of it all, the students appreciated the Memorial. It is beautiful, impressive and a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives on that fateful day.
The "Survivor Tree" at the Memorial. The tree survived the attacks and was nursed back to health. In 2010, it was uprooted in a severe storm and still survived. It is a permanent planting at the Memorial.
