Your 9/11 Story
I understand your desire to not re-live the events of 9/11. What I can't understand is how indifferent you are to it. I guess unless you watched it unfold live in front of you, with friends and loved ones that were in the buildings that you really understand. As I stood in Jersey City, directly across the Hudson River, I watched as the planes hit each building. I watched as the first tower came crashing down and thought to myself, how could anyone survive. I have a friend (my best friend) that, thank god, made it out alive from the 97th floor of the South Tower!
Here in the NY tri-state area, where so many were lost, will never grow tired of seeing it on the news. As I sit here and listen (and watch) the reading of the victims' names, tears still well up in my eyes!
We must never forget!
