New York, New York
"We had this fantastic contradiction of people who hated you so much, they were willing to give up their life to take yours- and people who loved humanity so much, that they were willing to run into the damn building, in the smoke and flame, just to save the life of somebody they never met."
With tears streaming down my face, I watched the final installment of Ric Burns' 8-part documentary series NEW YORK on Tuesday night. Never anything more truer than the description from former New York Governor Mario Cuomo on the events of September 11, 2001.
For a fabulous blog post, see Things Best Left Unsaid. Thanks Hartwick for telling me about this Tuesday night series.
