Helicopter Above Ground Zero
At first the helicopter is difficult to see in the picture. It looks like a smudge, or a bug that landed on the camera lens.
Yes, it might be difficult to see, but it wasn't hard to hear that afternoon, even among all the Lower Manhattan hubbub after Osama bin Laden's death.
The TV cameras were on the ground capturing the reaction at Ground Zero, and I imagine this helicopter was doing the same from the air. A co-worker mentioned that it reminded him of 9/11 itself.
On this Memorial Day weekend, it seemed appropriate to remember.
The blog will be back on Wednesday.
