9-11-01 Memorial

This is a memorial for the over 3,000 people killed on September 11th, 2001.
America, and indeed the world, will forever bear the scars of that day.

For each person killed in this attack, a 8 foot American flag was displayed. Attatched to each flag is a small card with the name of the person killed and brief statement about them. There are so many names to be seen. I felt guilty not reading each and every one of them, but it was not possible. Some of the cards bore only a name, age, and where they worked. Some tried to give a bit of insight into who the person was, or what mattered to them in life. It was no doubt a monumental task.
