Empty Skies Memorial

Adjacent to the landing where we caught the ferry to Liberty Island we came upon the Empty Skies Memorial. This was beautiful site and an emotional place to visit. 


We walked silently down the corridor with the kids.  When we came to the end I explained to DD why there were so many names on the walls we had just walked through.  She reached out and buried her head on my shoulder and hugged me.  “Mommy,” she whispered, “that’s just so sad.”  Still makes tears well up thinking about her touching response.
