A steam pipe explodes, New Yorkers leave their shoes behind in the panic - Ground Zero - 9/11

The 9/11 Teardrop Memorial - I had no clue this poignant memorial existed. It was a gift to America from the country of Russia and is dedicated "To the Struggle Against World Terrorism." It is in Manhattan, NY. Around the base of The Teardrop were the names of all those who died on 9/11 – including 26 Russians. Vladimir Putin was there when construction began and Bill Clinton attended the dedication ceremony in 2006. Since then, it has been forgotten.

The 69th Infantry Regiment Armory in Manhattan was framed with 343 flags, representing the FDNY members who died on Sept. 11, 2001, for FDNY Medal Day 2012.

So much blood. It's hard to look, but it is a reminder of just how bad that day was. Just how much a toll the terrorists took.
