9-11-08 Tribute In Lights
from the park at NYC Hall.
I woke up on 9-11-08 to the tv. Katie Couric was repeating that there had been a horrible accident and was asking questions of callers trying to get more information. I opened my eyes with my heart racing because for the first 10 or 15 seconds, I thought it happened again. Shortly after that I realized that it was a replaying of 9-11-01. It set the tone for the day. I drove into Manhattan in the afternoon and somehow for some reason it just felt important to be there.
