The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

One beam at a time

Seven World Trade Center is coming back.

The first steel beam was raised yesterday, on the way to a height of 1776 feet.

And below the beam fluttered an American flag — crafted in Afghanistan.

You gotta love it. As Michele says:

We are moving on and rising up. We will never forget, but we will not curl up in the rubble and die, either. The New York City skyline will never be the same; none of us will ever be the same. But we can adapt and we can look at the rise of new buildings as another stage in healing.

Amen to that.
