I'm Still Alive and Well and Volunteering

Here's a shot of the "Reflecting Absence" Pool and waterfalls at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. 
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.
