9/11 Remembered and Celebrated

My view of the NYC Skyline.

I’d like to celebrate and shine the light on the darkest day in the last decade by showing pictures of what it was like before the darkness and what it can be after the darkness.

I was living in New York City and moved 5 to 10 minutes to the NYC Skyline, the postcard view. Almost everyday at sunset, I would walk along the NYC Skyline and sometimes exercise down to the Hudson River. The view was spectacular, especially at night. The September 11 aftermath left a dark cloud hovering above the area where the Twin Towers stood for many years. I saw the smoke, ash and other debris everyday when I walked along the skyline. The scenery was still beautiful and captivating, but when I turned my head slightly to the right where the Twin Towers stood, it had a ominous feel to it. But as they began to slowly rebuild, the area seemed to get brighter. It is still a work in progress today. I am looking forward to seeing the light again when I return to New York City.

Sometimes the ugliness from the darkness somehow rules the day, but the beauty from the light eventually overcomes. Without the darkness we can’t appreciate the light.
