They Can't Take Our Liberty

I, like many other people, have a large collection of old National Geographic magazines. I think it's interesting to occasionally pull one out and see how the world has "moved on" since it was published.

A few days after 9/11/01 (no later than 9/15) I picked one at random and came across the following picture. I'm not superstitious, but this coincidence was almost eerie.

Yes, that's the Statue of Liberty and yes, those are the World Trade Center towers in the background.

I cut it out scanned it, added the caption, framed it and hung it on my wall. It's also been the wallpaper on my laptop ever since.

It's a very poignant reminder of why we are fighting.
