It sits at Ground Zero as a vivid reminder of the day our country was attacked.

The memorial includes two reflecting pools that are in the footprint of where the Twin Towers used to stand.

Each is surrounded by the names of 2,983 people who lost their lives that day, etched in copper.

A museum is being built on the grounds that will open in May.

It's designed as the educational component to the memorial.

Since the memorial opened two years ago, more than 11 million people from around the world have visited.

According to Joe Daniels, the President of the Memorial - it reminds us that "when the times require it, as bad as things were, we came together to take care one another."

It's very powerful.
