New York, September 11th, 2001
911

We were in NYC two weeks after the terrorist attack and it was still burning and the wounds were still fresh, very fresh.

Seeing soldiers in the streets of NYC was a clear indication that America had changed.
Their uniforms mirrored the uniforms of the firefighters who lost their lives trying to save people.


2 weeks after and there was still dust covering all of the buildings and streets nearby.


 


Something in us wanted to see ground zero and we were not alone. There were many others milling around looking in disbelief at the remains of the tragedy. Below you can see the what was still left of one of the towers. 


One of the towers and the damage to the buildings around it. 


 


As night fell in Manhattan, the workers continued on cleaning up the debris. It would take another 8 months to complete the task. This was a terrible job and I appreciate those who were part of it.


From the Brooklyn Bridge you can see the constant column of smoke from the still burning underground fire and the new skyline of New York City.


The obvious symbol of Sept 11th is the buildings that were destroyed, but the real tragedy was the loss of lives of the innocent people. It made me mad at the way that hate always seems to take the lives of the innocent.

The story wasn't over yet, of course and many more people would die in this, our new war.
