"There's been a horrific accident."
I was sitting in my office listening to Sara McLachlan's Building a Mystery, programming a software application when a co-worker rushed in and softly muttered those words the morning of September 11th.
I knew when we couldn't load cnn.com or msnbc.com it was something bigger. The rest we all know is tragically, history.
From business trips to broadway get-aways, many NYC excursions ended with a trip to the World Trade Center observation deck to marvel at the magnificent NYC skyline.
So shortly after the 9-11 attacks we paid homage to sacred Ground Zero. To pay our respects. To see for ourselves.
The sight, smell and sounds of Ground Zero was and still is indescribable. Yet permananetly etched in my mind. I can't begin to articulate something that is beyond words. Bigger than words.
So on this 9-11 anniversary I am sharing photos of our Ground Zero homage. The pictures speak more than I could ever begin to.
|The sacred ground where the World Trade Center towers once stood.|
|One of many tributes near Ground Zero.|
|The sphere which once stood in front of the WTC was salvaged.|
|A cross made out of WTC beams assembled in front of the viewing area.|
|Neighboring buildings covered in ash and dust being cleaned.|
|The NYFD heroes were still putting out secondary fires.|
|The NYC skyline at sunset with Lady Liberty in the background.|
|I heart you NYC.|
