After the Statue of Liberty cruise our group headed off to the 9/11 Memorial. To be able to get in we had to go through a security check. Luckily everybody passed it! The Memorial was impressive and very beautiful. It is the only graveyard for those people who died in WTC towers. There were family members grieving their lost ones. The weather was sunny and warm so it was hard to imagine that such a terrible thing could have happened there.
I learnt so much more about this whole tragedy, for example once a month the Memorial is open only for the victims’ families. In these attacks nearly 3000 people died and many buildings were damaged and destroyed. Our group had the chance to see all the victims’ names written in the memorial pools.
