I remember listening to the radio and not understanding what they meant when the towers fell. I couldn’t fathom that two of the tallest buildings in the world could disintegrate like that.
I remember the calming presence my friend Anne had upon me.
I remember how empty the roads were when all the people who usually commuted out of NYC weren’t there along side me. I never wanted to be stuck in traffic so badly.
I remember how quiet the skies were for what seemed like forever. Silence never sounded so ominous.
I remember the first time I went to Ground Zero and how I couldn’t move once I entered St. Paul’s Chapel.
I remember how everyone in the country came together.
