Tomorrow marks the seventh anniversary of the May 15, 2014 dedication of the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

Together with family members of 9/11 victims, survivors, and witnesses, President Barack Obama, New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and honored guests gathered in Foundation Hall to mark the occasion.

“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.

Since opening in 2014, the Museum has welcomed more than 17.5 million visitors from all 50 states and 179 countries. Many U.S. and foreign dignitaries, religious leaders, Medal of Honor recipients, and law enforcement agencies have paid visits to this site of reflection.
