Saturday morning we got up early to go on a tour at the 9/11 memorial museum.
Not the cheeriest of places to go, but it is something that I've wanted to see. 9/11 was a very vulnerable time for me with regards to my sister in law, Laura. I was on my way to pick up some things for her, to take to her house and spend some time with her, because she was dying from Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. I was near the Safeway on Goshen Road when I heard on the radio what was happening. I went to my mom's house and we started watching the tv together. We couldn't believe it.
I left and went to Laura's and watched in her bedroom.
I couldn't believe the magnitude of the feelings of the area. It was really amazing.
It's an amazing the memorial they have built.
This is where you wait to go thru the metal detectors to visit the museum.
The first part of the self guided tour has an amazing impact--the part of the wall of the first tower.
To really understand the affect of the heat and ash of the twin towers fire and collapse, you need to stand next to this firetruck. Incredible...
We enjoyed the museum. They have done a fantastic job with the remembrance and see the time line of how all the planes were lost, was really incredible.
We then decided we wanted to try some authentic NY Pizza for lunch. I love how you can put something into your phone on google and it not only finds authentic NY pizza places around you, it gives you the directions for how to walk there!
Here's the pizza we ate! It really was yummy!
Kaitlyn and I were to be at UNCC today, but things have changed for her. She's been having doubts about the distance and her decision for weeks now. After much self discovery and trying to get answers from UNCC on two main topics, and receiving NO phone call back, we decided to explore her options at her second choice, WVU. Can't tell you how accommodating WVU was and answered back quickly.
So, Kaitlyn will be a mountaineer in the fall!
Have a great Monday!
