Today is the 10th anniversary of one of the worst days in the history of the United States. I'm posting this picture of our beautiful flag to honor all who were lost on that terrible day. The second two pictures are from a visit to New York City that I took with my kids in December 1991, ten years before the attacks. The middle shot shows a much younger me on the ferry going from Liberty Island back to Battery Park with the twin towers behind me. On that day, we rode the elevator all the way to the top of Tower 2 in the World Trade Center. The third shot is of me standing in front of a window at the top of Tower 2 with a view of the city behind me. You can see part of Tower 1 through the window on the left side of the picture. That is my daughter in the red jacket sitting on the floor in front of me. I still have the souvenir t-shirt that I bought at the gift shop up there. Please forgive the quality of these pictures (and the fashion!), as they were taken with a 35mm film camera and they are 20 years old!
