“The Photo I Missed”

I was close to the Towers when they fell; I was at Liberty State Park, close by stands Lady Liberty.
I saw the gaping holes, the flames, the sky turned into a cloud of dust and smoke.
I didn’t have a camera; how I wish I did….but those photos are carved into my brain……never to be forgotten.
On the way home from the Statue of Liberty, we had to drive by a sprawling cemetery. My uncle lays in rest there; he died at 19 from another war…..WWII.
Standing amidst all the graves, were masses of people…….just staring at the NY skyline……The living among the dead, watching what was the remains of the death of so many…….
I will never forget that scene. I wish I could show all who read this, the poignancy of it…..
The fragility of life…..
Yes, that is the one photo this photographer missed…..and that will haunt her as much as those photos in her head from that September morning.
Namaste,
Peace to all who lost a loved one that day, and Blessings to all who serve this country.
