On May 15, 2014, President Barack Obama, New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, family members of 9/11 victims and honored guests gathered in Foundation Hall to mark the dedication of the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
“Those we lost live on in us. In the families who love them still. In the friends who remember them always. And in a nation, that will honor them, now and forever,” said President Obama in his address to the 9/11 community in attendance.
