Guests are invited to pen inspiring messages or the names of beloved victims upon the three dimensional tower walls.
The ceremony proceedings include a casting of carnations upon a tribute fountain, placement of memorial flags at the foot of the trade center monument, a dove release and a walk-over bridge that traverses an actual World Trade Center Beam.
