The Lens: Capturing Life and Events at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum is a photography series devoted to documenting moments big and small that unfold at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The View: Flowers and notes are left as tributes to the victims of Sunday's Orlando, Fla. shooting under the Survivor Tree at the 9/11 Memorial.

"Terror has again left a horrific mark on our country, this time in the city of Orlando, leaving an entire community in mourning and victims' families unable to sense an ending to their heartbreak and pain. We pray for those families, the injured, the residents and the city's leadership," said 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels. "Maybe they cannot today, or tomorrow, but they will find strength to recover, and when they do, they will be stronger because of it, and we will be there for them."
