Travel is often an emotional experience, especially when you visit a site which evokes strong feelings. Frequently these places are memorials to events or people. In these next few posts I will explore some of the most moving sights that I have visited.
Perhaps the most moving location on earth, for me at least, is Ground Zero, the place where the Twin Towers once stood in Lower Manhattan until their destruction on September 11, 2001. The area is now referred to as the National September 11 Memorial and was recently dedicated (on the 10th anniversary of the tragedy) although construction is still ongoing at the site. I have not visited the area since before the dedication so I have no pictures to offer except a picture of the World Trade Center towers prior to the debacle.
