I 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.

Sad story. I'm not American so I guess I'll never really understand what it was like. I hope that the ground zero building work gets some mOmentum, seeing as you feel so pationately about it. Hope that the anniversary isnt too sad and that you can be there for your friends if and when they need you
