These pictures were taken on my first trip to NYC in March 2002, almost 6 months to the day after 9/11/01. (and, yes, were taken with a film camera!)
We landed in New York the day that President Bush declared war and the mood in the City was understandably somber. Although it was a work trip, we managed to hop a subway and go down to Ground Zero one afternoon.
Eight years later, these events are starting to feel like “history” to some of us. Let’s not forget what it felt like then, in hopes that we never have to go through it again.
I dusted off my old Tribute to Heroes CD this morning. I still like this Alan Jackson song. The part about watching I Love Lucy re-runs gets me every time. I don’t know why, but that’s the saddest part for me.
