A couple of months ago, Stephen and I went to NYC. One of the places we toured was the memorial site and museum at Ground Zero. While our guide was talking to us and the rest of our class, I couldn't help but notice what a peaceful and quiet place it was. For such a bustling and noisy city, everyone walking around us was whispering. Going there made things more real for me. To be there and see the damage and the progress was really quite humbling... especially since on that very same day, Osama Bin Laden was and killed and that evening NYC celebrated.
