Pics Of The Day #1607

Today’s reading of names at New York’s 9/11 Memorial honored victims from around the world. It had a bit of a Westport feel, though. Andrew Colabella was one of the readers — and a featured singer was fellow Westporter Kelli O’Hara. (Photo/Andrew Colabella)

David Squires reports: “This morning at I-95 Exit 18, I stood with many strangers with a lump in my throat, as thousands of motorcycles roared past on their trek of remembrance. I was heart warmed and saddened at this milestone. Flags, peace signs, waves and rumbling vibrations passed before me and through me. It seemed like “a good thing.” (Photo/David Squires)

  1. NICE WORK GUYS . . .PEACE TO THE WORLD

  2. This parade was the most disrespectful tribute I’ve ever seen for anything. Blasting music, Hootin’ and hollerin’, screaming, throwing cigarettes and trash, and blocking traffic forever. I know if I died – in any fashion – I wouldn’t want to be commemorated by 1000 people I didn’t know riding their motorcycles through my once peaceful town, now more akin to Sturgis!!
