Innocence Remembered

In 2000, my daughter Kate and I  lived in Long Island, NY and would always get excited to see the skyline on our travels in and out of the city. She would point out all the beautiful buildings and my boyfriend and I would quiz her on their names. This is what she made me for Christmas that year.

Construction paper and chalk were never more beautiful. I loved them then and now they are even more special.

Since I purposely did not address 9/11 on 9/11
This is a way to do so now which instead of pain brings only great Joy!
Ps. Kate..I love you a million times bigger than the sky!!
