Two years seems like forever, or a day...

Two years ago today we became, you might say, real journalists. I shot the photo below in the Puerta del Sol where thousands of young people had gathered after the bombings to mourn collectively, and our first big news story was "Terrorist Attacks Jolt Spain." Far different from the story we had filed the evening of March 10th, a piece on the upcoming Spanish elections. Last year the commemoration here was notable; this year, it's more muted, more pensive. With all the political fighting within Spain, and the great uncertainty outside in the rest of the world, we all wonder, I suppose, what the future holds for people of different faiths, convictions, hopes, grievances.
