Never forget, 11 September 2009

2009/09/11

Today being what it is, the major thought I’d like to share is a simple one: never forget the significance of this day, and what has come before.

Eight years ago today, our Republic suffered a terrible tragedy; we also witnessed the assertion of our most noble instincts. Neither should ever be forgotten.

Note: I shot the above photo in New York City, at a construction site near Ground Zero. Many impromptu tributes have been created in such a manner, particularly on the plywood fences that separate the active construction sites near the former World Trade Center location from the sidewalks that abut those sites.
