9/11 memories

Once again, too many work deadlines to write much, but I'll share the usual link to my own story from the day, originally written to share with family and friends the evening of the attack. Click here for thatSo glad to have made it out and then to actually have been able to help people even a little bit the same day. The efforts on the water and along the waterfront were amazing. I'll add this short documentary with that story. Wonderful the way people in NYC pulled together that day - this angle of the story just can't be told enough, as far as I'm concerned. 

With so many awful things going on right now, September 11th seems so long ago. Dreaming of better days to come - much love from Brooklyn to any readers who are suffering from smoke, fire, COVID, or just missing friends and family.

I just read your account of the day. Your description of the layout of the subway and the mall ... right now I work on Long Island, but most of my career has been in lower Manhattan or Jersey City, and I recognized every landmark you mentioned. I was fortunate to be working on the Island on 9/11/2001, but so many of my friends were in the city that day. That day changed all of us. I hope we never have another like it.

The boatlift is one of my favorite memories of such a sad day. Thank you for sharing it.
