Today the events of the Boston Marathon have finally caught up with me.
I’ve been avoiding it.
Well, not completely. I did manage to take this shot of the near completed Freedom Tower on my weekly trip to NYC from upstate New York, a city that I love, a city that I work in and where I grew up.
Every week I see this tower and I think three things in succession:
1) I miss the Twin Towers.
2) There are people who lost people in those towers that miss them every day.
2) Wow, we really are moving on.
Every time I see that tower I think of what was there, what we went through, and that it is over.
When things are devastated, it is a time of shock, chaos and grief.
And then, the Phoenix rises. Without fail.
Looking forward to seeing what rises up in Boston.
