insidewright #9-11 #Memorial #NorthPool I know it's hard to imagine stumbling upon this memorial, but that's what happened. Directionally impaired & unfamiliar with this part of Manhattan, I was searching for the 2/3 train at night. When I realized where I was and what this massive site was before me, it took my breath away. As I stood there in awe, and with a deep sadness in my heart, the image in front of me became disturbing. It was dark, and the spotlights were playing on the waterfall. For a moment my eyes saw objects falling, and my memory of the news footage--particles falling in the hazy distance, the eye unable to decipher between dust, debris and bodies--colored my current visual experience. I pulled back my focus, took in the size of this incredible pool, and of course it's the footprint of the former building. I'm sad to say that the evening experience of these pools left me with dread, not peace. One day I'll visit the pools during the day and hopefully the natural light shining on the cascading water (vs spotlights), will leave a peaceful, ethereal impression on me. 2d

chapter3new 뉴욕 일정 중 찾았던
전 World trade center의 터.. 무너진 두개의 건물의 터에 커다란 사격형의 구멍이 뚫려있고, 그 밑으로 폭포수 같은 물이 하염없이 떨어지고 있었다.

구멍의 주변 난간에는 대리석에 세겨져 진 이름들이 희생된 이들을 추모하고있다.

몇몇 이름들에는 희생자의 가족들이 가져다 놓은 듯 한 장미 한 송이, 백합 한송이가 쓸쓸하게 꽂혀있다.

그 뒤로는 그런일이 언제 있었냐는 듯이 신축된 One world trade center가 엄청난 위엄을 뽐내며 서있다.

이미 15년이나 지난 일이지만 9/11 테러의 흔적은 미국인 뿐만 아니라 전 세계 사람들의 마음속에 상처로 남이있는 것 같다.
아무 생각 없이 관광지라 생각하고 찾아갔던 나와 같이간 일행들도 마음이 웬지 숙연해져서 대화를 자제했으니.
