It always makes me a little sad when I see this ornament. I bought it at the Grand Central Holiday Fair in December 2001, not long after the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the plane crash in Pennsylvania. The fire was still burning below the rubble at Ground Zero in December even as the cleanup was well under way. Our emotions were still raw, but I think Christmas did a lot to help us return to our normal routines. Although things would never be the same, life went on.
