My sister and I welcomed the new month with a visit to some of our nation’s most prominent historical sites. We had visited the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, The Stonewall Inn, and the 9/11th Memorial and Museum.
The 9/11th Memorial and Museum is definitely something you have to experience. Once you step onto the grounds, you’ll feel a sense of pride and patriotism — you’ll definitely feel very American. I was in the 4th grade when this happened, but didn’t realize the importance of it until much later.
There are chilling recollections of that day from voice memos, pictures, and more. The museum provided snippets from passengers on these planes, such as a a woman leaving a voicemail to her husband, reminding him how much she loves him and apologizing for what’s about to happen. What really messed with my heart was when a man explained his thoughts while escaping the collapsing tower — as he was running down the stairs to live, firefighters were going up to their deaths and they did it knowingly.
For those of you who ever plan on visiting the museum, please make sure to check every Monday at 9am for free admission tickets. These admission tickets will grant you access to the museum from 4pm to 7pm every Tuesday.
