Today, America remembered the 10th anniversary of the tragedy we all know as September 11th. Well, today, I didn’t want to be stuck in the house just watching all the special and live coverage, I wanted to be in the city. If you’re this close to the district it makes no sense not to visit especially on this anniversary occasion.
So I headed into the city to visit the Nation Museum of American History (which had a special 9/11 exhibit with artifacts from the Pentagon, Ground Zero, Shanksville and the TSA), the Newseum (which had two 9/11 memorial exhibits) and the Pentagon (which has it’s own memorial area to honor those who were killed in the Pentagon that day). It was a long day but it was a very good one and it was the best way for me to honor the events of this anniversary. I feel like I gave the date justice by going out and remembering what happened…from various perspectives.
Below are various pictures from my day…more to come but this is a start.
Never to forget…9-11-01
