30 day Blog Challenge - Day 8

A photo that makes me angry/sad

In two days it will be the 9 years since the attack on the twin towers. It still haunts me to this day. I will never forget turning on the TV and seeing this image, as it was happening. It was surreal. Who could do such a thing? I felt a lot of emotions that morning... mostly anger at the people who could do this to my city, my home. Now when I go go back to visit, this is what I see...

I took this picture from the airplane on my last visit. At first glance it looks like an ordinary city skyline but when I look at it, all I see is what isn't there anymore, the twin towers standing tall, welcoming me home. Sad.
