Beautiful and sad. Just one more day before the anniversary of that horrible event. As we continue to deal with terrorism around the world, I’m finally confident we have a president who is committed to destorying our enemies instead of ‘winning their hearts and minds.’

May God bless all our First Responders, and all those lost that obscene day.

The image of a firefighter overcome with exhaustion and despair by the horrors of 9/11 now towers over Midtown in an eight-story mural on East 49th Street near Third Avenue.

The work, by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, is based on a photograph by Post lensman Matthew McDermott of Mike Bellantoni on one knee, head bowed, leaning on his ax.

Admirers Sunday stopped to snap photos of the work — including two EMTs who hopped from an ambulance to take a shot.

“It moves them more than the general public because they wear the uniform,” said McDermott.

Tuesday is the 17th anniversary of the city’s darkest day.

    Thanks for sharing this Tammy. It is a moving display. I am annoyed, disappointed, and so on with how little attention is given to the anniversary of this horrible event now. I think it is just too politically incorrect to even talk about it much. The passage of time is not a good excuse to stop commemorating it. After all, Pearl Harbor Day is usually referenced heavily on that day, and it happened multiple decades earlier. Maybe it is because we Americans and America itself is now considered to be just as responsible for 9/11 as the jihadis who committed these atrocities. 🙁
