Paying Tribute on 9/11
I have lived in New York to have been in Manhattan on 9/11, which was 21 years ago today, and it is one of the days that I have made it a personal tradition to visit the World Trade Center memorial, usually after work, to pay tribute to all that we lost in 2001.
This year I happen to be traveling on 9/11, so this once I am paying a virtual visit to WTC through some of the pictures I have taken at the World Trade Center on 9/11 over the years.
Here are some of the pictures by day:
By Dusk when the iconic blue lights start to become visible:
By Night where the blue lights representing the two towers that were lost are visible from near and far:
I love the years that I come across bagpipers paying tribute, either as an organized band or just gathering in smaller groups around the memorial sites –
The subway entrance I use to get here still retains a doorway from the original World Trade Center subway station.
I am not in New York today, but this is a day I will Never Forget.
