As he stood in the rain, he wondered, had she, 40 and 2 years ago, loved him as he'd loved her? Or was it pseudo chemical reaction, lust instead of love? No matter, he didn't want to know, he'd hold the memory of her as it was in his ever fleeting mind.
The 9/11 Teardrop Memorial - I had no clue this poignant memorial existed. It was a gift to America from the country of Russia and is dedicated "To the Struggle Against World Terrorism." It is in Manhattan, NY. Around the base of The Teardrop were the names of all those who died on 9/11 – including 26 Russians. Vladimir Putin was there when construction began and Bill Clinton attended the dedication ceremony in 2006. Since then, it has been forgotten.
