September 11, 2011: The 2011 Tribute in Lights (9/11 Memorial)

"By the dawn of the 21st Century, New York had also emerged as one of the most strangely paradoxical cities on Earth. At once bewildering diverse and cosmopolitan and yet in many ways surprisingly insular and inward-looking. As if the process of globalization had mainly meant gathering in the world's peoples and riches without involvement in the world's conflicts and divisions" -Ric Burns, New York: A Documentary Film.

 

Quote from today's New York Daily News: "I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom." (quoting Abraham Lincoln).
