It’s been 11 years since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the downing of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. The tribute to those events at Ground Zero in New York is both a beautiful and fitting reminder of the lives that were lost that day and our ability to move on and grow from a tragedy like this.

Check out some photos from the last couple months showing the progress of One World Trade Center along with a few photos from the memorial service today.
