911 Remember – HOPE – Heal
I cannot help but pause today and think about the South Tower of the WORLD TRADE CENTER. It was one Woman’s face which they focused on at a top floor of the South Tower. During the commentary on the news…With new technology many news stations used a powerful zoom lens and focused on her terrified face. You could read her lips screaming for help as smoke and fire busted out the windows below her. As the camera zoomed, the South Tower collapsed around her…It was 9:59 a.m 2001.I was drawing a cartoon for my window cleaning cartoons series…Watching every thing unfold as if I was there…The act of terror was not what bothered me the most. It was this anonymous Woman’s face in the window that did the most damage…So much that even now at 9:59 a.m. 2012 I still can’t get her face out of my memory!
Yes, today I pause and remember the fallen. I stop to remember yet I hope for healing…It’s now 10:28 a.m the time that the North Tower collapsed and disintegrated and I’m still hoping.
