Being at Ground Zero while the memorial was being built, and after it had been built was one of the most surreal experience of my life. I will never be able to put into words how I felt standing where so many people lost their lives. On that day we lost so much, but became united as a country. We will never forget.

Joseph Niepce was a french chemist. His main goal in photography was to invent the way to fix a picture. After hitting a wall, him and Louis Daguerre joined forces and decide to work together to further the photography world. Except in 1833 Niepce dies. After years of not being able to figure it out, Daguerre gets really drunk one night and accidentally breaks a thermometer. By breaking the thermometer, he discovered that mercury was what they were looking for all along.
