9/11

A Tribute of Light

A Tribute of Light

Today marks ten years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  All over the internet there are memorial messages, from the #GodBlessAmerica trending topic on Twitter, to blog posts (1, 2, 3, and there are many, many more on my Reader…).  It really is one of those things where you remember exactly where you were when you heard the news, and how everyone I know watched the footage as if it was some kind of action movie, how I watched the towers fall over and over again on every channel, and it didn’t seem real.  It’s awful how those images are still so powerful, how the ten years since the attacks seem like yesterday, and how the reverberations of that morning still have so much impact.  When I went to New York last year, we visited Ground Zero, and its eerie how it feels… empty.  When you stand there and look up at the sky, you’re surrounded by skyscrapers, and then there is a gaping hole in the skyline.  Tonight, there will be a Tribute of Light at the World Trade Centre site, which you can read more about here.  It makes me so sad that people are capable of doing these things to other people, and that these terrible acts are so far-reaching.  I hope that each of the victims of that day are resting in peace, and that their friends and families have been able to find some peace over the last decade.
