the USS New York - like a phoenix rising from the ashes

I heard the story this morning about the new ship in the Naval fleet - the USS New York, which includes 7.5 tons of steel in the bow that came from the collapsed World Trade Center towers.

Appropriately enough, the new ship made a visit to the city that it's named after and was greeted by many of those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.

A few years back, we had a chance to visit the USS Intrepid when we were in New York, and it was pretty awesome. I think the USS New York is a fitting tribute to those who were lost that day and to the power of recovery and moving on, even as we never forget.
