9/11 Memorial's Millionth Visitor

9/11 Memorial's Millionth Visitor Statement of 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels on 9/11 Memorial's Millionth Visitor

For 10 years, people were only able to walk the perimeter of the World Trade Center site, stealing glances at the progress through construction fences.  As of today, more than one million people have returned to this sacred ground to pay their respects, and are able to witness the rebuilding of the World Trade Center all around them. It humbles us to see that the public's will to commemorate the victims of 9/11 is as strong as ever.
