Fourteen Years Ago

Today is a day Americans will never forget. We all remember just where we were and what we were doing on 9/11/2001. The skyline of one of our key cities was attacked and changed forever. Thousands died, heroes were born. It was the first time the mainland of the United States was attacked since 1812 and it scarred our national psyche.

As a people we have become angrier and more scared than ever before. Our journalists and politicians seem to want to keep us afraid and market fear to us every day. When you visit New York today you see a new tower climbing out of the ashes to once again dominate the skyline.

This image is a look back to what the city looked like before the day of terror. It will never look that way again but with the new tower the city looks more complete and who knows what the future will bring. The new skyline is a monument to perseverance and grit and I hope it will help heal us as a country.
