"The Faces of Nearly 3,000 Innocent Souls"
Yesterday, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum opened its doors to the families of those who lost their lives in the 2001 attacks, as well as the first responders and recovery workers that helped save the lives of others that day.
"Here, at this memorial, this museum, we come together," said President Obama. "We look into the faces of nearly 3,000 innocent souls -- men and women and children of every race, every creed, and every corner of the world. ... Here we tell their story, so that generations yet unborn will never forget."
