When Marianne Pizzitola visited the World Trade Center Memorial last week, she was already wary. A retired EMS for the Fire Department of New York, Pizzitola, 43, had been a first responder on September 11th, almost 11 years ago. She, like so many others, lost friends that day and had finally mustered the strength to travel to New York from her current home in Georgia to pay her respects.
What she found disturbed her.
"This place is not being treated like a memorial," she said.
