This image comes from a Facebook album and has been Skitched (www.skitch.com) and dropped in here. I feel shivers just looking at the image of the Twin Towers as they stood then.

BTW, this post with the Skitch image comes to this blog via Scribefire which happily accepts Skitch images for inclusion in WordPress.com posts!
