A Cross

While in New York City recently, I paid a visit to the World Trade Center site. There I came upon the famous cross, constructed of the steel beams that were once part of the Twin Towers. Here’s a view of the cross.

I remember arriving at the site six days after the fateful events of September 11, 2001. It wasn’t a pretty scene. Using a Hasselblad 6X6 camera, I took a number of documentary photographs that I keep archived in a secure place. Some weeks later, I returned for more photo taking, including piles of steel beams that were cut into pieces for scrap iron. Sad to see them twisted and mangled. Here’s a close up of the plaque on the cross.

Soon it will be ten years since the tragedy occurred. I’ll never forget that scene. Neither should you. At least one of the key personnel who concocted the nefarious act now has a special place in the deep blue sea, which just goes to prove my old adage: The woods may be lovely dark and deep, but from the ocean comes not a peep.
