I went to law school in NYC and started my career there. I still go back a few times a year. My husband and I were visiting just a couple weeks before 9/11, and we were back there about a month after (we had plane tickets for a wedding reception - the couple canceled the reception, but our tickets were non-refundable, so we went anyway). The change was truly horrible. I still remember the sheer oppressive smell of burnt things in the air, the emergency phones were still set up all downtown, the missing persons flyers posted everywhere by loved ones. We saw the huge gaping hole where the Twin Towers used to be from the plane as we were flying in. It was just awful. I debated the issue and decided not to mention it on my own blog yesterday, but God knows I've been thinking about it.
That's a sad story. It must have been really horrible to see. I have never been to NYC at all, and am fortunate to not have lost anyone during 9/11, but it really was a terrible, heartbreaking time for everyone.I understand about not posting on your blog yesterday. I could only bring myself to post a song, but not my own words... thanks for sharing
No, thank _you_ for posting the song - it's important to remember. It just makes me so sad.
