I walk the canyons (a tribute to 9/11)
8/27/2006 7:43:22 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

As my own personal tribute (and as I’ve been doing since 9/11/03), I once again resubmit “I walk the canyons (a tribute to 9/11)” and reflect on that faithful day and pay homage to those brave individuals and innocent lives so brutally snatched on that sun lit day. I’ll once again pay silent tribute and light a candle and walk the canyons…and never forget.
I walk the canyons (a tribute to 9/11)
By Robert Amoroso

September 11th 2003

Since 9/11 I've walked the canyons of lower Manhattan, many times. The sun now shines in places it never did before. The towering Towers are gone now, the sun now shines on its footprints, and every time I walk this hollowed ground, I walk in silence. My head a little lower, my pace a little slower, I hear the muffled whispers of tourists, and the flash of a camera as they pass the chain link fence, where once stood two mighty buildings. The weather beaten photos are now the only reminder left, to the horror and tragedy that took place two years ago, today. Photos of beautiful young faces smiling, looking back at you, are gone forever. They now line the fence, as a silent tribute of that faithful day.

Photos, of thousands of young dreams shattered within the flash of a fire ball…dreams forever lost. Yet the sun still shines, in the glass and steel canyons, the buildings still sparkle like diamonds in the sky. Perhaps it's a testament to the human sprit, or perhaps it’s the will of a city that refuses to quite. Whatever it is, I begin to walk a little taller, my pace begins to quicken, I will not quit, I will not be frightened, I will not yield to terror, I will not be intimidated, I will ride the trains, I will walk this town, unafraid, I'm a New Yorker...I'm an AMERICAN!
