May we never forget the innocent who perished and the evil that committed the atrocity. Regardless of your ideaolgical beliefs you should never target the innocent to achieve your goals. I sincerely feel for the families of those impacted by this heinous act. I hope that they are able to find solace in our care and concern for them and in knowing that their sorrows will be heaped upon those responsible for this act by God.
This image was taken shortly after 9-11 before I was a professional photographer, when I traveled to New York to take in the gravity of what happened to our nation. The lights are coming from the World Trade Center site and I was moved by the American flag flowing in front of it. I hope we truly never forget.
