It wasn't a building. You didn't look at it that way. You saw that it was more than a structure. You recognized there was life in and around it. That's what gave it a spirit of its own.
I actually walked past the buildings on Friday, September 7, 2001. I considered going in, but I figured I would go back in November. Heck, it would always be there. Lesson learned: You never know what tomorrow brings. If you want to do something, do it today. Tomorrow it may not be there anymore.
The following pages are my WTC Tribute. The first set are pictures of the "old days," when the towers were around. The second set are some pretty distressing photos that the New York Times took (courtesy of the New York Times). The last set are the 6 month light tribute on March 11, 2002. It was inspired by the phantom towers illustration that a few artists came up with.
This tribute is dedicated to the victims of the WTC, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA, their family and friends. It is also dedicated to the firefighters, Police Officers and EMT workers involved in 9/11, as well as the US Military and members of coalition forces in Afghanistan and elsewhere. It is dedicated to everyone who had ever worked at the World Trade Center.
Lastly, it is dedicated to my friend, NYC Firefighter Robert Kafel, who saved lives that day. It was Robert's efforts that helped me and all of us through those dark days.
