May 5, 2011: On a morning so clear, so blue and so sunny that it recalled the morning of September 11, 2011, President Barrack Obama arrived in New York  to lay a wreath at the 9/11 Memorial and meet with families of September 11 victims and, along the way, to meet with firefighters at a Midtown firehouse that lost 15 men on September 11.
