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.
