Ellis Island | April 2001

The last time I saw New York (and Virginia, Pennsylvania, and other wonderful east coast states) was mere months before 9/11. I remember being completely enamored by the bright lights, the high energy and the beauty of the city…it was far better than I could have ever imagined. So as I watched the towers tumble to the ground from the comfort of my home 3000 miles away, my heart broke for that city. It continues to break today as I am now older and truly able to understand the gravity of the situation and it’s repercussions.

The skyline may be different, security may be more extreme, people may be forever bruised by the experience, but I can’t wait to get back to that beautiful city one day.
