20 Years

There aren’t really words, or at least I don’t have them today, so I think I won’t try.

Instead, here are some photos from our visit to NYC, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and the 1,776 foot tall One World Trade Center in 2018.

The 9/11 Museum was one of the most significant, memorable and impactful places I have ever visited in my entire LIFE. If you ever get the chance, please go.

20 years. Never forget. 9/11/2001.

  1. I clearly remember that day, I was in colleague and went out to buy a snack during break time and saw it on the news and couldn’t believe it.
    what a memorable and tragic day.


  2. I definitely want to go back and go to the museum. I was glad to see the memorial when I was there in 2017. I was visiting a friend in Queens who had a baby so didn’t have much time that day and the line for the museum was so long! I will get back there someday, though. It’s such an important part of our nation’s history. We’ve been watching so much 9/11 content lately. The Alan Gratz book is very well-done. He is such a great author. I think this is my 2nd or 3rd book I’ve read by him. Even though I don’t have a middle grader yet, I like to read middle grade so I know what to recommend years in the future when my kids are that age. Plus I find that middle grade novels can still be very enjoyable and impactful for us adults! You should definitely check it out! The chapters are so short, so it’s quite a page turner.
