9.11 -- Anniversary of the Horror
Lest we forget.... it continues to amaze me that our country was so violently attacked eight years ago today. I lived through it here. I was on my way to the airport when the towers were hit. By the time I returned home after my aborted taxi ride to Queens, the Pentagon had been hit as well. The silence of the city, the shared mourning, and the unity that resulted are all memories that will never fade away. This morning's ceremony at Ground Zero was just as heart-wrenching as the first one in 2002.
