9/11 Annual Tribute Lights Print

This shot was taken September 11, 2002 and the city of New York is still overwhelmed because of this horrific attack.  To commemorate the fallen and injured, some agency decided to salute the city with “Tribute Lights”.

After traveling home from work on the train, ferry boat with coast guard escort and a city bus.  Later that night it was refreshing to walk on onto my Terrace, to span New Jersey and Manhattan.

To my amazement I saw the “Tribute Lights”, with an angelic image. It appeared to have created a place for us to receive some peace.  This angelic image now reminds us of hate, instead of love.
