I am travelling to NY with my family in January and had already planned to visit it, now I know that I HAVE to. As for a special monument, over twenty years ago I went to the holocaust museum in Jerusalem. It still gives me goosebumps to think about it. The art installation that stands outside is the same one as the one outside Auschwitz concentration camp . Inside the children’s memorial, the mirrors,the candles, the eerie silence……. Tragic but incredibly thought provoking. Again, after twenty years, my heart skips a beat at the thought of it

My dad had served in Vietnam, but he rarely ever spoke of his experience. When we got to the wall, there was a book where you could look up your loved ones name to find the coordinates of where the name was etched on the wall. I’ll never forget seeing my dad, turning the pages looking for a name, and then finding it. I had assumed he knew that the person he was looking for had died in the war, he didn’t. Finding that name in the book was the first time he heard the news. The tears rolled down his cheeks, the first time I had seen him cry. We all walked quietly to the wall and he reached his hand up to the name of his fallen friend, mentor and comrade in arms. I saw my dad as a man that day, not just as my father.

I felt honored to experience the memorial and remember all those who lost so much.

My grandpa had picked me up early like the rest of the parents of the children and I went home to watch cartoons and every channel was live coverage of the attack. It was so scary. I had no idea what was happening. My dad worked near the city and he went on his building’s rooftop and he said he can see the towers in flames and what not.

Being on those hallow grounds was such a moving experience, I will never forget it.
