As we go through yet another period of daily headlines about domestic US terrorism, I just thought of another dream that influenced me. About a year after 9-11, I had a dream about the Statue of Liberty being blown up. It was vivid enough in my mind that I resolved to pay the landmark a visit even though I was living in Florida. So on my next trip north, I carved out time to drive from Albany down to NYC to see the statue for the first time ever. Got stuck in a big traffic jam in New Jersey, and didn’t arrive until 10 minutes before closing time. So I had to stay over in Elizabeth and catch the statue the next day, but enjoyed the experience, even with the bomb-sniffing dogs and the limited access at that timeĀ  (just a few feet up into the base, not to the head or torch.)
