On the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on America, I took my family to the Absecon 9-11 Memorial.

The blue tarp covers a piece of the World Trade Center that came from the 39th floor, that was to be unveiled later that day in a dedication ceremony. The white triangle on the left tower shows where the piece of metal came from.

Slowly and steadily throughout the morning, people came to pay their respects and remember what happened to the United States of America, 15 years earlier on that day.

Like myself, other parents came with their children who were not even born on that day in 2001. Adults could be seen quietly wiping away tears and crying privately, while taking a few reflective moments in silence.
