I am bawling my eyes out.

I did the NY Times virtual tour of the museum and it was hard not to get emotional about it. I couldn't do the dedication nor am I sure I could visit the museum.

I am not there, Moo, but I was watching on TV.

Watching it right now as I get ready for the day. Impossible not to get emotional.

I am so glad that this is finally opening.

I hope everyone can take a minute to stop and remember that day, and what happened, and why it happened.

Sending hugs, strength, and warm memories to those who lost loved ones that day.

It still sickens and angers me that our nation allowed this attack.

I don't think I could ever go see it. For a few years I worked on the 103rd floor of Two World Trade. It was an extremely happy time in my life. I don't think I could bear walking the streets around there having all those great memories and see first hand that the towers aren't there anymore. But I'm glad there is a museum.

I looked up the NY Times article and I was wondering: "A large portion of the slurry wall has also been preserved. ". What is a slurry wall?

Also: There is a page that starts with "Down the Ramp:
The narrow corridor opens onto the first overlook of the museum space. Continuing on, large artifacts reinforce a sense that we have arrived at the World Trade Center site." There is a large picture below that.

What are these "things" sticking out of the wall?

This link will show you what the slurry wall is and where it was. Those things sticking out are called anchorheads.

I still have a hard time being in that area without being sad and being hit by memories. Not sure i'd be able to go.

I lost so many friends and coworkers that day. I still have a hard time going back to the area.

Oh, Mack I am so sorry for your loss(es)! (((Mack))) I am sorry for your sadness with your memories, too, Unagie. (((Unagie)))
