New York | Visiting the 9/11 Memorial

New York | Visiting the 9/11 Memorial, a place with a lot of history and great respect for the victims, in addition to the museum with many details about this tragedy that marked the world.

We went to meet the 9/11 Memorial – Tribute to the events of September 11, 2001. 9/11 Memorial it's called Reflecting Absence.

I had no idea how much energy there is in this place, it's surreal!

There are 2 spaces – South and North Pool – with water fountains that fall into an indoor pool with a large void in the middle.

In both spaces are the names of the nearly 3000 people who died during September 11, 2001 in World Trade Center, the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania, the Pentagon and the 6 who died during the attack that took place in February 1993.
