A new tribute to 9/11 responders officially opened today. 

A ceremony was held this morning to dedicate the Memorial Glade in lower Manhattan.

It sits west of the Survivor Tree at the 9/11 Museum and Memorial.

The Glade was created to honor the workers who got sick or died after working at Ground Zero.

Today's ceremony coincided with the 17th anniversary of the end of recovery efforts at the site.
