September 11th Memorial

Since moving to the city, I've been able to talk to people about their personal experiences with September 11th. They all mention an eery silence. A smell. A grayness that blanketed the city. The loss.

I discovered the Staten Island September 11 Memorial when I first moved here. It's titled "Postcards". The large white envelopes framing the city skyline always have an impact on me. The silence does too.

  8. I saw the memorial at Ground Zero for the first time yesterday morn at 5:30 am for the live telecast of the 10 yr. anniversary. They said it was the biggest man-made waterfall in the USA. People were doing rubbings on the names like we've seen some church members do with tombstones for genealogy. Our church service was beautiful on "freedom" & remembrances of that day. Richard & I walked across the GGBridge carry flags we carried for the Bridge's 50 anniversary in a meditative walk in remembrance of all who suffered that day & continue to do so.
