While in New York, I had the opportunity to visit the 9/11 memorial. This is how it works: you enter a line and walk through a path with boards telling the story of the tragedy. Along the line, though, there's this sad feeling since you're remembering such a big tragedy in U.S.'s history. Afterwards you go through a metal detector and the line soon opens up to a square made to remember the event. There are some trees, several boards about the event and a small museum. Also, there are two big "holes" on the ground, where the towers used to stand. Around them there's a list of the victims' and the firefighters' names. It's pretty cool, but if you're running a tight schedule it's something that you can leave for next time. It seems to me that it's something more significant to Americans since it was something that deeply hurt their country.

"dedicated to those who fell and to those who carry on" / "dedicado àqueles que caíram e aqueles que prosseguiram"
"may we never foget" / "que nunca possamos esquecer"
