We walked all around the Ground Zero site.
Somehow I thought there was a spot you could stand and see it close up but if you ever could. .
you can't now.
It looked different to me in reality as opposed to the views shown on television.
Security is very tight ..
If you put your foot on a ledge to support yourself inside a building to take a better photo.
A security guard. .
(who clearly was quite tired of having to repeat the same thing ..
day in and day out. .)
will tell you to remove your foot ..
from the ledge.
I wonder if I will ever return to stand at the memorial and properly pay respects to those that lost their lives that terrible day.
The construction is quite amazing . .
and we were not the only ones curious and still feeling deeply about the events that happened ..
on that day.
As we walked around the large area under construction. .
we kept looking up at the buildings and imagining what it would have been like for all those who witnessed it. .
not on TV. .
but through the thousands of skyscraper windows facing the site.
all for now ..
