  1. That was such a dreadful day, Frank. But I was very proud to be a New Yorker. This city is symbolic of what this country is about: it’s resilient. Milton and I both knew people who were killed in the towers. It was so tragic. We feel for their survivors who must resuffer all that pain every year on this date.


    • Lame,
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this day. I can’t imagine what it must have been like to be in NYC that day … I’m not sure that would be even possible to imagine. Nonetheless, your positive words about resilience is right on. Peace to you today.


  2. The photo is a timeless tribute to the victims of 9/11 and to the City of New York. I traveled to NY two weeks after the attacks. It was a devastating experience to see the destruction and to feel the atmosphere that gripped a city in a war zone. Since then I have followed closely the rebuilding of the area destroyed by the 9/11 attacks. I look forward to a trip there soon to see all that has replaced the twin lights in the photo.


  3. Stunning photograph Frank, it’s a very sad day and will never be forgotten. I walk through the motions of tasks today, but sitting on the edge are emotions of pain that hasn’t gone away – I wonder each year if it will start to lessen, but I can say this year it still feels too fresh.
