Looking at 2011: Images of our journey

As the year ends, we look back at the events - global, communal, private - that define 2011. From Egypt's Tahrir Square to Wall Street; from Libya's political upheaval to Japan's quaking destruction, we have witnessed drama and change. Osama bin Laden is dead; our soldiers (we can now "ask, tell") have left Iraq.  The 9/11 New York memorial offers an oasis of peace. A prince took a wife in London; Republican candidates took to the campaign trail.  The space shuttle landed for the last time.

Take a few minutes to enjoy the New York Times "The Year in Pictures" with Colum McCann's words; be amazed at the journey we - now seven billion of us - have taken together on our planet.
