I’ve made the remarks I’m going to make about things surrounding the 9/11 attacks and our actions since, but can’t allow the sight of the lights shining up from Ground Zero, to pass unheralded.  I was struck by one shot that pulled back from the shot of the lights to bring into view the Statue of Liberty.

I was struck, when I saw that camera work, by two thoughts.
First, that in spite of it all (or, perhaps, because of it all), she’s still standing.
Second, I can’t help but wonder what it’s creators would have thought of their fellow Frenchmen of today.
