Weekly Photo Challenge: Admiration

Ladder 3 i

Ladder 3 – 9/11 Memorial Museum, New York

Seeing the crushed remains of Ladder 3 at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York on our moving visit to the museum last year one could not help but feel an overwhelming sense of admiration and gratitude for the sacrifice and bravery of those 343 firefighters of the New York City Fire Department who were lost that day together with an additional 68 emergency workers and the 2566 innocent lives they were trying to save.

  1. Loved this choice Andrew. I was tremendously moved by my visit to the memorial. We lived here in Charleston at the time but had just moved here and were very tied to friends and family in NYC and NJ at the time. Our son would have been in the WTC Path train terminal that morning except that he had a dentist appt. Amazing how such a small thing can make a huge difference in life. Anyway, great choice and wonderful capture.
