Our Very Own 9-11 Memorial

These two steel beams, weighing 16,000 pounds, are from the World Trade Center ~ they have been refurbished and placed in front of Fire Station One in downtown Salem.
In 2016, our city will permanently dedicate the memorial on the 15th anniversary of 9-11 with a formal plaza around the monument.
I visited this site twice today.  I can't imagine how it must feel to visit the site in New York City ~ as I stood next to these beams today I experienced many emotions.  
We are fortunate to have this memorial in our city.
