A somber day as the dedication to the museum at ground zero. Honoring victims and heroes of
September 11. President Obama , in his touching speech today describes “a sacred place of healing and of hope” . Watching the dedication I started tearing up. It was truly heart breaking , even more so as it was hard for President Obama to speak.
The ground zero museum provides people with an inside look at the horror people went through. The last fragment removed from ground zero, 36-foot steel-beam covered in memorials to the dead, seeing this puts a grave perspective on the events of September 11.
Symbols of heroism , such as a red bandanna owned by Welles Crowther, who helped several people before unfortunately losing his life when the north tower collapsed . A story that touched everybody in the audience,especially when Crowther’s mother Alison and Ling Young , a survivor took the stage side by side. As well as part of the stairs leading out of the north tower , named “survivors stairs”,
Although a sad day , the museum also gives that perspective that we are truly a great nation . A nation that can’t be bullied by ignorant people. President Obama gave a very touching and inspiring speech ,reminding all Americans, we stand united always and come together when needed .
