Rebuilding Ground Zero

I spent some time at Ground Zero Friday. It’s an incredibly powerful place, I imagine unlike any other. The site has been transformed into a city of cranes and construction. I can’t help but think that this is exactly how it must have looked in the 1970s during the building of the Twin Towers.

While I still terribly miss what once was, I’m happy to see a new beginning for lower Manhattan.
