Have you seen any of the memorial quilts for 9.11?
I've had several emails lately asking what it was like to live in NYC when it happened...
I have very strong visual & sound memories from that day, I'll never forget...
That day I was out with my daughter in her stroller...
I had my video camera with me, and all I can really tell you,
Standing in the middle of 6th ave and 23rd St. ,
All traffic had stopped and people got out of their cars
and stood staring at the WTC.
(rather like in the movies)
Smoke, clouds, and then just like that,
a cloud drifted away, and the first tower completely disappeared before our eyes...
Not a sound.
I ran quickly home with B, through the crowds of people,
Sirens blasting were the only thing you heard...
and turned on my television as the second tower came down.
Ash covered the air, the smell ran all over the city,
And all was silent.
Little did we know that
my Stepson's godmother, Berry Berenson, was on flight 11
that crashed into the towers.
It was very hard to live here after that...
New York changed. We all changed.
Please take a moment to think about every one's loved ones lost that day.
