Eight Years

David Filipov looks for a picture of his father, Al Filipov, at the Tribute WTC Visitor Center in New York City. The center is run by the September 11th Families Association as a museum and memorial to the victims and history of the World Trade Center and the 9/11/2001 attacks. Filipov's father was on American Airlines Flight 11, the first plane flown into the towers. (Scott Lewis)

I have struggled to find words to write here today. So, I have decided to let one of my favorite photo sites, The Big Picture, do the talking for me.

It is hard to believe it has been eight years.

Please check out their moving tribute here.

It's a bit overwhelming to see all those photos! Unfortunately, we will never be able to forget that day.

One of the blogs I follow is "King of New York Hacks". He's a taxi driver in New York City. He's had a whole week of posts regarding 9/11. He'd appreciate your post today, to be sure. Well done.

That was an incident that shook the whole world. For the first time we realised how precarious all our situations are!

A striking and moving picture. Don't know how you got it - is there a story in it? - but thanks for posting it.

i lived in ny for 5 yrs. and could never get myself to go to the place that they set up.... because i feel like all they have done is lied to all of the families, i figured i would just get angry... its still overwhelming.
