My first memory of 9/11/01 is that it was a gorgeous, late summer day in New York. We had been in our new home just a few weeks, and everything still had a new scent to it. The paint was fresh and the walls were clean and waiting to be adorned with pictures and decorations.

It is also a day to honor those like the first responders, and service members in the following years, who gave so much. Spending the day volunteering helps create something good out of the tragedy of 9/11.

Far from easy closure, though, or throngs of rubbernecking tourists, the 9/11 Museum fills visitors with numbed reflection from the moment they walk through its light-filled, glass atrium. The metal detectors you encounter upon entry, with security and police at nearly every turn, have something to do with it.
