911 memorial

Last Thursday, 
my mother and I finally went up to the 9/11 Memorial.

Behind you can see the Museum Pavillion (not opened yet),
will be the new WTC transit hub sesigned by Santiago Calatrava.

All but one of the trees on the Memorial are swamp white oaks. 
The exception is a Callery pear tree above,
known as the "Survivor Tree".
"This tree was planted on the original World Trade Center Plaza in 1970s,
and stood at the eastern edge of the site near Church Street."
After 9/11, it was reduced to an eight-foot-tall stump,
in the wreckage at Ground Zero.
 "The tree was nursed back to health in a New York City park,
and grew to be 30 feet tall,
sprounting new branches and flowering in the springtime.
It is standing just west of the south pool, 
it embodies the story of survival and resilience that is so importantyo the history of 9/11."

The weaher was great around 70 degrees,
and we also enjoyed some really good music.
