  Original Published: 9/11/2013 It's been 12 years since the day that changed too much for too many, September 11, 2001. Victims' families gather Wednesday at the memorial in New York City. And services in Pennsylvania, Washington and New York honor the nearly 3,000 souls lost that day. As we remember the 12-year anniversary of 9-11,. CNN's Deborah Feyerick takes a look at the state of Ground Zero. Bey9ond the massive reflecting pools, where water fills the void left by the twin towers, the 9/11 museum is coming together. A year-and-a-half behind schedule, it is set to open this spring. "These two tridents actually came from the north tower," says Joe Daniels, President of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. "They're an important symbol of our resilience. They speak to the recovery period and they really recall the original towers. Images of those who perished and stories of the lives they lead will grace the entry, as seen in this artist's rendering. "It's a story of people who were sitting at their desks, having a cup of coffee, talking to a colleague, boarding a plane for vacation, and then the absolute unthinkable happened," says Daniels. Families have donated personal momentos, each precious in their own way. "Weh you look at all the artifacts, how did you decide which ones to include and which ones just couldn't make it? asked CNN's Deborah Feyerick. "It was a difficult process," says Daniels. "We very carefully looked at the ones that could best tell their stories. Like the steel that bore the brunt of a plane's impact." More than 10-million people from 188 countries have visited the 9/11 memorial since it opened in 2011. A new transportation hub will open in 2015 and serve a quarter of a million people a day. One World Trade Center soars 1,776 feet in the air, redefining the skyline, one of six buildings set to change the lower Manhattan landscape. Symbols of rebirth, renewal and remembrance of what was lost.
