This weekend I found myself standing at the Memorial at the World Trade Center site. Observing and thinking. Around me were families, young and old. For the adults, the names and the empty voids and the blue sky was powerfully moving. But for the younger visitors, teens mostly, the Memorial I suspect is a bit confusing.
I had to stop myself from walking up to them and saying: "You know, just beneath your feet there is being constructed a powerful museum that will offer you details, information, context, and historic artifacts that will help you understand what happened here."
