Six months after the 9/11 attacks of 2001, I had the chance to visit the temporary memorial wall at the Twin Towers site in New York City with a dear friend of mine. That day, I snapped several pictures in order to remember not just the fragility of life but also its capacity for hope and resilience. The picture below, featuring one of the victims, James Francis Quinn, seemed to me to embody all of life’s paradoxes: both the strengths and weaknesses associated with being human. Today, especially, is a day for recognizing and remembering what it means to be human. It’s a day for remembering Jimmy Quinn . . . and all the other victims of 9/11. It’s a day for remembering.
