Happiness still shines through a framed picture of Ben Ehmen, 83, and wife Jeannette Davis, 77, during their first joint trip to New York City. Ehmen scoops his wife off her feet in the photo edited to look like he’s balancing on a tight rope between the two towers of the World Trade Center. The pretend peril livens their certain smiles because, there, enveloped in a symbol of American prosperity, they assumed they couldn’t be safer. Handwritten on the back of the photograph is the date — Sept. 10, 2001.
