Never Forget September 11, 2001

These are some of the pictures that Kevin and I took at Ground Zero last year on September 12, 2008 while we were vacationing in New York City. We avoided Ground Zero on the actual day because of all of the attention is was getting and because both presidential candidates were there.
We actually arrived by train from Boston to New York on September 11th to find the whole city in a very somber mood. It was still full of the hustle and bustle you see on TV, but it was very quite for NYC. Kevin and I will always remember what it was like to be in NYC on this day.

To the 343 men and women who gave their lives to save thousands of others, you will never be forgotten! Thank you and God Bless you and your families.
