The New York Times Snowfall’d its preview of the September 11 Memorial Museum. I have mixed feelings about it. The museum, that is. I went to the open pit in 2005 because I wanted to see it, needed to. It was a raw, exposed, tangible representation of hatred. The site now is a triumph over that hate; it is a reminder of what happens when fervor runs unchecked, of when ideology becomes its most sinister; it is a tangible representation of perseverance, resilience, respect. I don’t want to go back to the site or visit the museum, but I think I must one day.
