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

The View: Today on the fourth anniversary of the Pulse nightclub attack, we remember the special ceremony held on the 9/11 Memorial plaza last year on June 12, 2019. Members of the public tied nearly 10,000 rainbow-colored ribbons on the railing surrounding the Survivor Tree. The Peace of Heart Choir performed a musical tribute at the Survivor Tree. The anniversary coincided with WorldPride 2019 and Stonewall 50.
