Even after 11 years, it’s a little strange going about “normal” life on September 11th. The somber remembrance of that day is thick in the air and you can see it in the eyes of most people.
For many of us, 9/11 is our generations Pearl Harbor. We can all recall the moment we heard about the attack on the Twin Towers and where we standing when we saw the images of that day for the first time. I’m not one to debate whether it was a terrorist attack or a government designed con on the American people. All I know is a lot of innocent people lost their lives and for that, I feel sadness. A post on some website isn’t much, but respect must be paid to the police officers, firemen, soldiers, volunteers and average people just going to work who paid the ultimate price for someone’s hatred or someone’s greed.
The Chromeball Incident post up some the article Transworld ran with Mike O’Meally’s photos in NYC the day after 9/11 as well as some iconic photos with the Twin Towers in them.
The Twin Towers wasn’t just a place of business, it was a legendary skatespot in Downtown for those who skated the City. This photo of Peter Bici’s backside ollie will always be my personal favorite skate photo that includes the Towers in it. Check Quatersnacks.com for more links to NYC related 9/11 skate arricles.
Consider this our moment of silence.
