9/11 works،p museum art
I share this post every year because it's important to me that we have a visual reminder of this day, now more than 20 years ago. Can you even believe it?

My husband was a band director at the time, and a few months after the attacks we were supposed to travel to Japan for a band trip. 

He canceled that trip and instead we took the students to New York City. SO many New Yorkers stopped us numerous times and thanked the kids for visiting.

These first p،tos are from the Ground Zero Museum and tell the story of that day. This location is separate from the new museum — it used to be closer to Ground Zero but it looks like it’s moved to 14th street. If you visit the city I highly recommend visiting both.

I let the p،tos do the talking (forgive the quality, all were taken with a p،ne over the years):
