Ground Zero

I definitely feel the energy of places all around me. Some are stronger than others. Some are more positive than others.

The worst I ever felt was at Ground Zero in New York City. My friend and I went to visit there about 6 months after the fall of the towers. We were walking around the city and we knew we were near, but didn't exactly know where it was. Then we came over this hill, and this horrible, heart-stopping feeling washed over me and I suddenly started crying. It was really wierd.

Right around the corner was Ground Zero. As I stood there where 3,000 people lost their lives, I could feel the pain, sorrow, and fear of that place. Every hair on my body stood on end. I couldn't stop crying. It was like every emotion that those that died felt was still in the air and it penetrated your body.

It was one of the most heartbreaking moments of my life. Since then I've been a full believer that emotional energy somehow stays in a place where strong emotions were experienced. I guess that's the only way I have to explain what it was I felt that day.

And since then I pay more attention to the vibes that certain environments give off. I believe negative and positive energy is all around us, and the experience at Ground Zero has taught me to be more attune to it.
