Nearly 14 years after the attacks on September 11, 2001, Melissa and I visited Ground Zero.
It was the first time she had ever been, but I had gone many times; regardless, we were both shocked at how over-the-top, corporatized, whitewashed, and smoothly packaged the whole place was.
Ground Zero has officially become the Disneyland of mass murder.

Not only should visitors "Exercise proper decorum, personal behavior, and conduct at all times,", but "All visitors and belongings are subject to security screening at the discretion of the 9/11 Memorial," meaning they have declared their staff can stop and search you at any moment you are on the grounds for any reason they deem necessary.
