Remembering 911 - The Survivor Tree

The Survivor Tree is a children's poem on behalf of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. It's the story of a lone pear tree at the World Trade Center that miraculously survived the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Discovered in the rubble by recovery workers and nursed back to health, the Survivor Tree has become a metaphor for hope and the resilience of the human spirit.
