When I went to NY this year, I went to ground zero and the firehouse just across the street from there, I stood in the street with tears streaming down my face. To me, knowing that there are people in this world that touch you to the point of tears, for just helping people that they didn't know. Everyday they do this. It is not a job or a career. It, to them is dedication to life. The ultimate sacrifice, theirs, for ordinary people like us.

Thank you for this photograph.

Outstanding work Andrew. Easily in my top 3 for the challenge. A work of art - and one that would make and outstanding print to give to the families of the ladder company.

As they appeared in the sky, the people looked up in wonder. They'd finally decided to make themselves known. Humanity reacted in all the myriad ways that humanity can act when faced with such a thing. Fear, excitement, paranoia, glee.

As the city simultaneously emptied and prepared, a large group of people gathered under the visitors, calling up to them. Welcome! they cried. Take me with you! said others.

A cheering rang up to the sky when ports began to open...

... and then silence, as hell rained down.


(this nod to Independence Day brought to you by the Number 4, and the Letters I and D).
