Tonight Rob and I walked over from his apartment in the Financial District to see the tribute to the ones we lost in the World Trade Center attacks this day, eleven years ago.
A most poignant sight:
The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.
