Photo of the Day (9.12.09)

Some events remain just as powerful and raw years later, and that is what 9/11 is to most Americans. Although I didn’t lose anyone that day, many of my friends did, and what remains for them even eight years later is a deep sense of emptiness that will always be there. I passed through Ground Zero yesterday and paid my respect to the thousands of lives lost that day. Wherever we are in the world, I hope we all take a moment if we haven’t already to remember 9/11 and remind ourselves just how precious life is.

If you have some great travel shots you’d like to share, be sure to upload them to the Gadling pool on Flickr. We might just pick one as our Photo of the Day!
