While this may seem like an odd choice to memorialize a very sad day, 10 years later, I think not. Having just spent some time in the western USA, Man and I saw a lot of bison. They are huge, majestic, mighty and represent to me, the ability to survive and come back.
In Custer South Dakota the city has many painted buffalo statues, they are enchanting. Just out of town to the north, heading towards the Crazy Horse monument I found this red, white and blue statue.
While, not a living specimen of fauna, what better to visualize the ability to survive and come back and our flag's colors, all in one image. The photo has been edited artistically with what Photoshop calls Dark Strokes, somehow also appropriate on September 11th.
