People rode their bikes to work at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. These were never picked up.
If you go to the 911 Memorial, I highly recommend listening to the radio log of United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. It is heartbreaking to hear people call their loved ones, but it is inspiring to listen as they make decisions for the good of all of us. For them to understand (sort of) what is going on is amazing. Especially when you consider this was pre-911 for the. Nothing like this had ever happened and they were in the middle if it. God Bless them and their families.
This section was nice to see since we heard so much about it during our tour of the Pentagon a few days earlier.
This firehouse was from Staten Island (?). The door was painted afterwards with the help of a high school student.
There are part of the memorial where you can take pictures and this is one. If I remember correctly, it included the pictures of everyone who lost their life.
I'm Michael Smith and this website is simply documentation of our travels over the course of 500 days. We are very lucky. We went bowling ... and some other stuff.
