Living in New York for a year has many benefits. It’s like having a box seat to culture and history.
In a few days the focus in the city will be on the tenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center towers. I saw tenth-anniversary t-shirts on sale a month ago.
Among all the possible activities the one I look forward to most is this film: Project Rebirth. A combination of time-lapse photography from Ground Zero and nine individual stories followed over the last decade will celebrate resilience, hope, and healing from tragedy.
I’m looking forward to this film scheduled to be broadcast on Showtime on 9-11 and then available at this website.
The film is based on this book. I met co-author Courtney E. Martin for breakfast recently and knew immediately that any project she is part of will be excellent.
Have you witnessed rebirth in your life or in the lives of those around you? What phoenix have you seen rising out of ashes?
