So True and as long as I have a blog I will not let us forget. Nor will I let us forget our veterans. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
I was amazed what a huge presence that flag made. It could be seen in so many unexpected places. I was speechless and everyone spoke in hushed tones. What amazed me the most is the sound of the water drowns out the city noises and it is very quiet there, as it should be.
I have a photo of the WTC I took in the mid nineties. It was a shot straight up, looking at the sky, showing the angles of the buildings. When I was a teenager I saw the towers when they first opened, and I took pictures then too. My last photos of the place are of the empty pit, and the devastated buildings surrounding it. The towers came down just days before my son was born–in fact I prayed all that day that he would wait to be born. My husband is a pilot, and he was away that day and only just made it home. Everything about the day is burned into my memory. God Bless America, and save her.
The first time I saw them was in 2010. From one of the financial buildings. I am so glad I got to see the memorial finished. They did an awesome job of honoring those who died. And yes bless here and save her.
Thank you so much for the pictures. They are the perfect thing to remind us of what Independence day is all about. Its not about beer, hot dogs or fireworks, but instead it is about our freedom. I worked in the city for many years and unfortunately haven’t been able to get back to see it myself in many years as I now live in the southwestern U.S. Thank you again, these images mean a lot to me and hopefully all of us.
I am glad I have them to share with you and today off all days. I also live in the south west. I have a nephew who lives in Jersey and I was visiting them. I hope you get back to visit the 9-11 memorial. It is like walking on sacred ground. I feel like I was given an opportunity of a lifetime. I am lucky I was given the gift to visit and pay my respects and lots of tears. We must never forget!
I hope to someday get to visit myself. I lived in New Jersey my entire life, that is until 12 years ago when I moved to Arizona. Unfortunately most of my family has moved away from there as well, but I hope to one day be able to visit the 9-11 memorial in person. Thank you again for your post it was wonderful.
