Sunset Over NY Harbor on 9/11/10.

The weather was just like it was on "that day" 9 years ago. Perfect with a crystal blue sky. I was invited to a picnic on Governor's Island and I have to admit, I was a little nervous about going somewhere where the only way out was by boat. Last year, 9/11 passed by quietly. This year it did not. But the day did pass peacefully if you avoided lower Manhattan and eclipsed with this sunset, the clouds dramatic and glowing. A sky that seemed like it was honoring the people that didn't make it home that day nine years ago.

Thank you for your eloquent tribute to that day that is hard for us who experienced it.
