Just spent a bone chilling, but soul-nourishing week in NYC. Saw some fam, took in some shows, did the Christmas thing as only NYC can do it. But the best thing we did was to finally visit the @911memorial. Not only remarkably well designed and informative, the experience is tremendously moving. Not only as a reminder of the incalculable sacrifice made by first responders and their families. Not only as a thorough exploration of everyone who was touched by or played a part in that day. What touched me the most was the memory of how united we were as a people, a country, a world on that day and those that followed.
Our guide, in challenging conditions, took great care to explain the intricacies of the design and showed tremendous respect for those who had fallen and their families. You will never think of the word “adjacent” in quite the same way again.
So, as long winded and tardy as this post may be, go see the memorial and take the tour at Ground Zero. It’s good for the soul.
Happy New Year, people. Here’s to a peaceful and loving 2018.
