"Remembering"

I took this while riding the Manhattan Ferry in September 2000, not knowing then that it would be the last time I ever saw the Towers.



The quote below I borrowed from my friend Jessie:

"Remember the unity we felt as a nation the next day? We can honor those who lost their lives best not by "remembering" the tragedy...but by "remembering" the feeling of unity that prevailed and how it strengthened us."

Thought I would share a link to my friends blog. She quoted an essay and it is pretty powerful.

Just commented on PW about the same thing... quite an iconic shot there. Every time I see them in the movies, I get a little chill.
