I wasn’t planning on visiting the 9/11 Memorial during my short stay in New York, but on my final day I spent five minutes in passing. The energy and the crowd was unlike any other during my visit, there was complete stillness and quiet.
I was young and didn’t know anyone personally affected by the event. I cannot say I know what the families and friends must have went through.
I’m now glad I decided to spend that moment with the hundreds of others paying their respects.
