US Flag of 9/11

A memorial to the victims of 9/11.

 

A pivotal moment in our history and a defining event in our collective conscious, the attack on "ground zero" - the twin towers of the world trade center in new york city, affected all of us deeply, disturbed some of us profoundly, and changed our way of life forever.

 

I could not take my eyes off the news - the papers, the TV broadcasts, and the nascent Internet news media. As I remember, that was when Google started its news section, including something new on its front page for the first time! During that period, I collected the outstanding work of the photojournalists featured on the front pages of every major newspaper in the United States.

 

I have created this visual arts mashup of the work of those professionals as a tribute to their photojounalism, as a memorial to that tragedy's innocent victims, and as a continuing reminder that we must all work together if we are ever to find peace.

 

We must never forget.

Also overthere

 

9 / 11 even elsewhere

thoughts in our head

3rd Worldwar

chaos, fear, confusion

thoughts:

back home now

work not important

our children, our love

nothing mathers more

together, each holding

the ones who you love

after 9 / 11

hope, hope for

a beautiful world

a world of peace

expect too much?"
