9.11 Tribute

The following are photos that I took in early October of 2001. New York was awash with flags and patriotism was the strongest I have ever witnessed in my lifetime. Perhaps we, as a country, need to look back on that not-so-distant past and remember how we felt about being Americans.

This is the image that haunts me. The blatant illustration of how long ago this was marked by the growth of my son.

Please do not steal these photos. It is simply bad karma and you could develop a nasty rash all over your body – is it really worth the risk?
