Today is 9/ 11/ 2011 and 10 years ago terrorism rocked America, and Vegas Bob and many others continue to remember this terrible event on 9/ 11/ 2001.

Here are some very interesting photographs of how I remember NYC and the "World Trade Towers" back in 1982.

Vegas Bob re-posted/ re-blogged these photos for anyone that may have missed them ...

Photographs of the "World Trade Towers" by Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz ... (Before 9/ 11) 

Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz in NYC 1982

 

Vegas Bob found some old photographs when he was in New York City back in 1982, and he wants to share then with you because the "World Trade Towers" are in the photos.

Back in 1982 VB was in Manhattan with the John Robert Powers Modeling Agency competing in modeling competitions with other models around the United States.

This was a very "Happy Time" for VB and yes I did go to the top of the "World Trade Towers" and Robert Swetz was fascinated by the views of New York City. I also took a ferry out to the "Statue of Liberty" and that's where this photo (above) was taken.

I am sharing this post with everyone because 9/ 11 is around the corner, and before 9/ 11 Vegas Bob remembers NYC like the photographs on this post. VB continues to pray for the children and families that were lost in 9/ 11 and for all the survivors ...

9/11 was bad but 9/12 was a uniting of America.  Flags flew and we were all one.

Interesting hair -do VB! I have been to NY once but only for couple of days. I had no idea at the time what "Twin Towers" or "WTC" meant. In Dallas we have a WTC that is only 3-4 stories so again, no idea.  Let this be a reminder to all that freedom isn't free.

It is difficult to believe that it has already been 10 years.  Such a terrible thing but as mentioned above, our country was truly united.

VB:) as I mentioned it is important to reflect on the 10th Anniversary of a day none of us will ever forget, it is also important  to remember, to express our gratitude to those who demonstrated what it is to be a hero, and to pledge ourselves to live in honor of their bravery. Thank you for your post and great pictures.
