A Time to
reflect for so many today through out the world. Today in New
York City, Police, Fire, Correction, P.A. Police, family, friends,
and just everyday people stopped to reflect and pay their respects to
the thousands lost in the attack on New York City and Washington D.C.
York City, Mayor Bloomberg lead a tribute to those who were
lost. This tribute was highlighted by a little boy who
remembered his lost father.
continue to think about what should and could be built at the sight;
tonights Towers of Light is a great start to healing the heart. So
many people see different things in the light. So many think
about how close they came to death and many are still trying to
handle their lost. To walk down Chambers Street in New York
City tonight and look up as I would do at the World Trade Center
reminded me of hope, power, and the will of America and New York to
reach for a higher place for answers and the will to have faith to
look forward to a better day.
