In 1997 hubs and I visited New York City and the Statue of Liberty.

My feature photo, although not very clear because it’s a photo of a photo, holds many memories.

The photo was taken from the first platform of the Statue of Liberty. In the background, behind hubs’ shoulder stand the the World Trade Center towers.

Little did we know at that time of the complete devastation and unfathomable loss of life that would happen there just four years later.

I clearly recall every moment of September 11, 2001 right from the early morning hours as I was getting ready for work until the end of that horrific day.

“It was as if real life had been canceled for the day.”
