    When visiting New York, make a point of visiting the National September 11 Memorial & Museum,it's an experience like nothing else I can describe.

    My son flew up there a few months ago and visited the both Memorial and Museum. Said it is
    extremely numbing.

    Twice I have gotten as far as getting in line to see the memorial in New York, but just can't go through with actually seeing it. It's just too painful to remember.

    That's farther than I've made it.

    I can't bring myself to visit it at all.

    I watched those buildings go up. school kids in nyc where the first tourists allowed on observation deck. There were hundred of schools and thousands of kids.

    I cant bring myself to go either. I still remember the smell that hung over lower manhattan after.

    Can't cry hard enough
    Remember them. United lost two planes as well.
    United and American, that's why they chose US!

    We all lost that day. At every airline.

    It was the day that changed our futures and the whole airline industry forever.

    I forced myself to go to the site in 2008, long before the memorial was in place. Don't know if I could visit it today, but I'll have to do it eventually.
