I wish I'd seen it. I was in the magnificent lobby, and viewed New York from the top of the south tower.
To see all the skyscrapers in New york BELOW you was indescribably awesome. However, I agree with New York and other firefighters, in saying they never should have built.(To high, to unapproachable, too many people). As I looked down, I felt, "My God, if this ever fell it would take out 15 blocks of lower Manhattan."
Nonetheless, having been there, I wish I would have seen the caravan.

I stop with my 2 kids and whatch the trucks go by in my home town. The sidewalks were filled with men and women and children waving the flag as they passed bye.People took pictures as they pass as well. It was something that made me stop and think how luck we are. people stop and said a small prayer and some cryed. My son was 2 and my little girl was not here at that time she asked me why the people waving flys and crying Mommy and then i told her what happen. and she looked at me with her little 6 year old eyes and said that was not nice of thos bad peolpe.they my son said i hope they put thos bad people way. i said i hope they do to when they chatch them. God bless all thos people and the familys this has marked for the rest of they life.

I'm sure more people would have been lined up to see those beams coming through the area if they would have known about it. Was it in the paper or tv about it happening?

It was i the newspaper, at least in ours, The Morning Call, it was also on our local new cahnnel, I am not sure about the big ones like ABC, etc. I had to work, so i could not drive down there, but I wanted to. It's been almost ten years, and I think what happened to our nation is just as raw today as it was in 2001. God bless all those it has affected.

We were site seeing in New York in September of 2000 and didn't have time to visit the Trade Center. I will always remember saying we would come back and see it next year.

I would like to say that I am completely amazed by what took place yesterday with the convoy. It is an honor to bring that peice of history to our home. The steel is a representation of the foundation of what this country stands for "UNITY". It took a tragedy to bring to this nation together and to forget all differences and biases etc. That was the day our country stood still and we united into one to bring justice for all that we have lost. I am honored that the steel from the Twin Towers has found its way to home to create a new landmark that the steel was created. I can't wait to one day travel to the Museum that will hold more than artifacts and history. It will hold our hearts in memories of significance of what took play that fateful day and the "UNITY" it reunited among our fellow Americans.

Watchin this video stirred up alot of emotions good and bad , I may live in Canada but the pain flowed all over North America and is still hurting as we speak today . I wish I could have been there and saw the Convoy in person God bless she will rise again straight from her ashes God bless North America .
