Word and Image

Manhattan Skyline 1/1/2000

Sometimes I can’t figure Lisa. She decided that we would head to Ellis Island to see the immigrant wall with names on January 1, 2000. No plan, no warning, just, “Let’s go.” She had put my parents, her grandparents, and other assorted relatives’ names there by making the appropriate donations. I have not returned since then. One visit. Who knew what history would tell? So much has changed in those years since past.

  2. What a shame the skyline changed. Pictures like you have are priceless now. You rarely see this skyline anymore, it really is painful to remember that day and the aftermath. You are so right about things changing, the whole world changed from that one day.
