Since opening in September 2011, the 9/11 Memorial has welcomed more than a million 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.

The MEMO blog has shared pictures visitors posted to the memorial’s Facebook wall and via Twitter, but thousands more photos are also available for viewing on Flickr.  A quick Flickr search for “National September 11 Memorial” yielded more than 4,000 photos as a result.  The Flickr map feature even lets users see where photos were taken while at the memorial.
