These pics were taken two years ago when we were in NYC. That's the memorial under construction in the background. I remember being surprised at how small the space actually is when you see it in person. It looks so immense on t.v.
It is a sobering sight. In a way, I'm glad we got to see it while it was still a gaping hole. It made me feel...sad, angry, frightened.
These were taken from a taxi heading back up town. Someday I would like to visit the completed memorial.
Every year, on September 11th, we light this beautiful Waterford Thomas Jefferson Lamp. We put it in the window...it casts a soft glow all day and into the night...the facets sparkle. It is the way we remember.
Enjoy the day,
