President and Mrs Obama toured the World Trade Center complex in New York yesterday, and got an up close look at the skyscraper that's being built to replace the twin towers that were destroyed in the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.

The First Couple reviewed the entire site from the 22nd floor of One World Trade Center, and then made their way back down to the ground level, where they signed one of the final steel beams that will be added to the tower. The President wrote his message in red marker:  "We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger!"
