I Was So Close ...i was working on wall street... my boss was late... sirens... the silence was terrifying. where was my boss? (my boss came in from jersey on the path train, which went under the wtc) ... my boss was like a father to me. i was frantic at the news of it falling, for many reasons, friends who worked there, i also knew his family (some) worked there, top floor.
they didnt make it.
but his guaridan angel. or mine. was with him that day.
and he had fallen asleep on the wrong train.
he wasnt there when it fell.
i walked over the bridge .... stood there.... and the next fell. and the blackness...my friend said he could see all the way in the bronx.
i had seen horrible death before, but one that will 4ever haunt me is when i saw a woman jumping... holding her skirt down... holding on to self respect until the end. that one broke me.
sorry this is so scattered.
