I'm Still Alive and Well and Volunteering
It's remarkable, it's amazing, it's holy ground. It took my breath away. It's the first time I've been there since 2001 and really didn't know how I was going to react. I found my friends' names on the wall and hung out with them for a bit...... it was healing and peaceful.
They did a remarkable job there. Hundreds of trees around the two pools make it so serene. And even though there were hundreds of people at the site, it had a silent and respectful atmosphere.
I'm glad I did it.
I decided to volunteer at the site a few times a month. I greet and lead the visitors into the site. It's nice to give back a little since so many lives were given to get this.
