OverdueI witnessed the second jet flying in from my office window across the river. I could feel the vibrations from military aircraft for days as the office building shook each and every fly over. I could smell the decay burning for weeks as the smoke plumes traveled across into New Jersey. It seemed that everyone I knew had a close friend or relative missing. I was one of the lucky ones. It was a very somber, sad time.
I find myself angry that at this tenth anniversary there still is not a building standing replacing those taken down by savages. Squabbling over plans, too many people feeling they have a right to say what they want. It's too late, in my opinion, the savages won the war because we cannot unite and rebuild.
I have had a tremendous amount of personal loss in the past ten years and I will be sad for the rest of my life because of it. It doesn't mean I can't rebuild and move on.
