9/11 in NYC

I wasn’t in NYC when 9/11 occurred.  I knew some people here and people who were at Ground Zero, but none were injured.

It’s too overcast for my normal view of the two searchlights that shine from Ground Zero.  I’ve always thought they are the best monument for 9/11, as opposed to a physical place like a wall or a pool.  Just my opinion.

On my way home from work, I was at 40th Street and 3rd Avenue and heard someone playing bagpipes.  He was doing it from an elevated public area at the corner.  I went up the access steps and found a lone bagpiper and one spectator.  The piper had an American flag on his instrument, but there was no overt sign that he was playing in commemoration of 9/11. 

I like to think that’s exactly what he was doing.
