This was the view from our roof garden last night. Each year the city sets up the "light cannons" from the World Trade Center site on September 11th. Obama and McCain were downtown yesterday, but I wasn't downtown and thus didn't get caught up in the security nightmare that doubtless paralyzed lower Manhattan traffic. The event seems rather distant now, seven years later. Aside from the flowers and candles left outside our neighborhood fire company and police precinct, there was little I witnessed to distinguish the day from any other. (And yes, that's the moon shining through the clouds to the left of the "ground zero" lights.)

I have to agree with you. Just about everyone carried on as if it were any other day.

I love the light tribute. It's such an effective gesture
