Fifteen

Fifteen years…**sigh**

In my previous post, I told you about a documentary on 9/10 on YouTube. In it, one artist did a beautiful time-lapse film from the artist’s lofts in tower one. It was entitled,”One never dies the day before”.

Fifteen years ago, it was the day when thousands of lives were lost: be it World Trade Centers, Pentagon, or in a field in southwestern Pennsylvania, they were gone, families were changed forever, injuries….I could go on and on.

I worked in downtown Philadelphia then and remember, for the first time, being nervous about working in a 7th floor office. I waited with thousands to get public transit home, and never prayed so much in my life. My life and security, like the rest of America, was changed forever.

For the innocent victims of that day, may they have eternal rest.

God bless America.

Bittersweet View

If there is a perk to being laid up for a week, I have caught up with reading and viewing some things  that have been on my to do list.

Keeping in mind that I was a history major in a prior life, I have caught a documentary on YouTube called ” 9/10- The last day of the World Trade Center”.

Knowing what we do now, the documentary takes various views from different people and places in lower Manhattan, and how daily life would never be the same. It does show a crossover of people, on that last day,and their reflection on 9/10 and 9/11.From college students, tv news anchors, terrorists, baggage handlers,relatives of victims, New York artisans who had studio space there, mayoral candidates,among others, I found this a well-done reflection to view before Sunday.

I strongly recommend it.
