Eight Years Later

Today in New York City the sky is dark, the wind is blowing, the rain is falling. A sharp contrast to the weather 8 years ago. September 11th, 2001 was a crystal clear September day. In sharp focus, yet oddly dreamlike, people burned, they jumped, they ran. Buildings tumbled. First responders fought a losing battle. They knew that, yet forged ahead regardless. We were stunned, we were horrified, we turned to each other and held on tight.

We often felt powerless, yet there was power in every small bit of kindness that was shared.

Today we remember.

Here's my post from last year.

I can't even imagine what it must have been like to be there on that day. It all makes me understand Pearl Harbor more since 9/11 will also be a day of significance for most in the US at that time.

I will never forget that day.
