At Zero

I’m part of a team working with the International Freedom Center, one of the four cultural institutions that are part of the World Trade Center redevelopment. Today I visited Ground Zero for the first time. I’d gotten close before, but never felt I was ready or had enough time to be able to reflect on it. The experience was somewhat uplifting, really. There was so much human bustle and vitality orbiting it (and in it at the rebuilt PATH station). Like platelets coagulating over a deep wound.
