2,753 Empty Chairs


From DNAinfo.com (via Towleroad):

MIDTOWN — Bryant Park’s normally bustling lawn was transformed into a solemn memorial Friday ahead of the 10th Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Midtown office workers looking for a place to soak up the sun instead found the lawn lined with 2,753 empty chairs facing south toward the fallen towers — one to honor each person who died in the attacks.

Sad.

PEACE...

That's what we need now..
Peace in our hearts,
Peace in our relationships,
Peace in our families,
Peace with the whole world,
Peace is the answer to everything
that saddly injured the earth as
a common home.

As a Canadian, I'm with you, American, on this sad remembrance day.

A better future is the main goal for us to aim without forgetting the errors of the past and making it a better world to live in for ALL....
