Twitter Users Share Their Memorial Moments

Since opening, the 9/11 Memorial has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the globe – people who have come to these hallowed grounds to remember, reflect and pay tribute.  In addition to seeing the names of the nearly 3,000 victims and standing in the place where the twin towers once stood, many have been moved to capture and share their moments at the memorial.

Earlier this month, the MEMO blog shared some pictures visitors posted to the memorial’s Facebook wall.  See that post here, and take a look at some of these heartfelt moments recently posted to Twitter:
