A dedication ceremony took place at the World Trade Center site yesterday, marking the completion of the National September 11 Memorial Museum before it opens to the general public on May 21. President Obama was in attendance for the ceremony, which honored those killed in both the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the earlier February 26, 1993 bombing.
