We all remember where we were on that fateful day when over 3000 innocent people lost their lives. We must never forget what a tragedy 9/11/01 was for America. Wherever we were that day, our lives changed forever.
This photo was taken at Liberty State Park in Jersey City in 2013. I went with a very patient friend who was kind enough to put up with my multiple photographs over a 3 hour period as the sun went down….So thank you Nikki for all your patience! Actually, we had a very good time and we talked about that day and where we were when we heard that a plane had hit the World Trade Center.
But let us also LEARN from the mistakes that we have made over the past 16 years. Those mistakes have claimed the lives of over 6900 patriots in the line of duty and thousands upon thousands of innocent lives that were randomly in the way during subsequent military operations. The video below is from the Watson Institute at Brown University. Direct deaths from the resulting wars since 911 are estimated at 390,000. Indirect deaths, and the number is admittedly rough, are estimated as high as 890,000.
The Tribute in Light is for them all.
