A Day of Silence

Eternal flame battery park framedToday, I will sit still and honor the heroes of 9/11. I will sit still and think about the families that were left behind.

Today, I will be silent to honor them.

This is the Eternal Flame in New York City, New York, at Ground Zero, lit by Mayor Michael Bloomberg on the first anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks upon the financial district of the city. It is currently temporarily located at Battery Park on the southern tip of Manhattan under The Sphere, which is a sculpture that had been recovered from the World Trade Center site. The eternal flame will be relocated to the World Trade Center location when the memorial there is completed. *
