Septmeber 11th

On Saturday afternoon we decided to go walk around Ground Zero in honor of Sept. 11th the next day. We had a very humbling experience. Of course, this day is celebrated all over the country, but it felt so much more REAL actually being here in NYC and walking down the somber streets with those that lost loved ones. Church yesterday was amazing. The speakers were great and the music was incredible. One of the many benefits of living here is that there are so many talented and brilliant people! One chick from the ward stood up without the mic and busted out a gorgeous opera song, then the choir got up and sang one of my favorite songs, "Death Shall Not Destroy My Comfort" and it seriously brought tears! Bishop got up and talked about how Sept. 11th 10 years ago was his second day on the job and he was just down the street from the towers. So many people here experienced the tragedy first hand. I can't even imagine looking up and seeing the planes crash into those incredible buildings with my own eyes! God Bless America!

I was wondering how it was yesterday out there! So neat that you got to walk around and be apart of it! Neat pictures too!
