This is just a small tribute to all of the people directly affected by the purposeful attack on our country on 9/11/2001. I know that the people they lost on that day can never be replaced. They were taken through acts of hate. Unfortunately the same type of hate exists on our own shores today and hopefully we can all rise up through the ashes and return, well not return, but get to a point where love and peace, and “the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”, and that “all men and women are created equal”, are the ideals that we attain. The images are ones that I captured on various trips to New York City that focus mainly on the World Trade Center.
