We remember...the blue lights light up the skies of lower Manhattan tonight.

The blue light memorial is so beautiful I'm happy to see a photo of it. Your 9-11 story is gripping and you must be feeling kind of sad today, I'm sorry. I'm glad your family didn't get injured, tho. I don't think this "wound" on the American psyche will ever heal.

The blue lights are a wonderful idea, they look beautiful with the buildings in the back ground... also remember.

WillOaks the blue lights can be seen far and wide...they are such an excellent idea...everyone in my family was fine, but like you said, this is a wound that went so deep into the American psyche, I would have to agree that healing, real healing is questionable..I wish I could tell you more...I will say, that when my son Edward was born, we lived in Battery Park City, which was in the shadow of the WTC...when he was about 16 or 18 months old, he had his first escalator ride in 1 World Trade..I will NEVER forget the look on his little face...

Thank you Heather just for taking the time to comment on this one...it took me all day to post..just too sad...still...hugs to you...:))

I love this photo..Edward doesn't remember the escalator ride, but as a little boy, he does remember Jimmy taking him over to the WTC...still can't wrap my brain around the whole thing...:((
