Do you know the story of this tree? It's incredible- the last surviving thing to be pulled from the wreckage. This tree was burned and crushed when the towers fell. You will really enjoy this short clip (less than 2 mins) telling the wonderful story.

"Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children." -President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001

These pictures give me chills. We went to NYC last October for the weekend and went to see the freedom tower. Unfortunately we did not get to go inside the memorial because all the tickets were sold out for the weekend. I am still sad I missed it!
