A Day of Quiet Reflection
New York was especially wonderful yesterday - more than usually energetic and upbeat. Everyone was feeling a sense of shared purpose.
So, today,we are all tired having stayed up well past our bedtimes.
But it was worth it.
This morning when I went to buy the paper, an older woman was buying copies of all the papers - and I don't blame her. We just grinned at each other.
These photos were taken last Saturday in lower Manhattan near the Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The reflections, the fallen leaves - one almost like a star.
I'm glad to be an American again, to be part of a country which has a great capacity for good.
PS. Credit where credit is due; John McCain's speech was a very model of civilized grace.
I was proud of him too.
Maybe we can all get better.
Oh, happy day!
