The NYC posts: One loud moment in NYC

One of my most powerful memories of NYC was the WTC memorial…

In the loudest, most lively and vibrant city in the world, where you hear ambulances and police cars 24/7, this was the loudest silence I have ever heard.

You can only hear water streaming down the monument.

You look around and again you can’t help feeling overwhelmed for so many different reasons.

It’s bigger and stronger than everyone in there.

It’s impossible not to feel an indescribable amount of respect, sadness and “not understanding”.

I felt it and I’m just an outsider.

An outsider but a human being. And you’re not indifferent.

That monument is there for a reason.

It’s there for thousands of reasons.

The thousands of carved names are now a reminder of what used to be thousands of real Lives.

1 name = 1 Life.

Could be anyone of us.

Randomly any given day.

May God protect us all and may Humans protect each other.

The idea behind this page is to share my opinion and experience in what seems to be a crazy world nowadays. I look at myself, my friends and acquaintances and hear so many different, yet similar stories… of our search for Love, disappointments, insights. I wanted to share them! Considering cultural differences some adjustments had to be made. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!
