5 years on


New York still remains the greatest city in the world. That must really bug America-haters everywhere.

Amen, Hugh! From my post today:

God Bless the United States of America. God Bless those families, all over the world, who have lost loved ones to terror. And God Bless those folks who have decided to stand up and fight for all of us, regardless of our opposition or support of this terrible war. Please allow yourself a moment of silence today to pray for those who have paid the ultimate price. And pray that somehow, the insanity of terrorism will end so that our children can live in peace.

From New York, where the skies are as clear and crisp as they were five years ago. Thank you my friend.

I lost five friends that day and a little piece of my heart.

This weekend I read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer in hopes to re-experience those emotions. It works. I'm not numb (as much as I might wish to be).

I think this one should be of the large, downloadable format...

Fantastic! Where can I get a hi-res version?

Posted by: Greg Furry at September 11, 2006 9:43 PM

Thanks for the kind words, Everybody.

Sadly, I don't have a high-res version of this one.

I gave the original to another blogger a couple of years ago. This 400-pixel image is my only record of it.

Well said, Hugh. Thanks.

Also, the US remains the best country in the world, and the Christian god remains the best god in the world.
