Remembrance

Although I never kept a journal in 2K1, I certainly had many thoughts on 9/11. In fact, I had just returned from the Tri-State area. After having spent six months living in South Plainfield, NJ and working in Edison. Additionally, I was also afforded the opportunity to go home to B'klyn on weekends, to help comfort my pops, as he recovered from a kidney transplant. 2K1 was really turning out to be a great year for me.

That was until 9/11. I had only returned from NYC, six months prior to the carnage. Many of my walking partners from HS, spent more time in the WTC, than the average NYer, because one of our close friends worked on the Observation Deck and later became and engineer for the NY/NJ Port Authority.

Despite the fact that three years have past, I still have vivid memories of the events of that historic day. No cell phone communication to the tri-state area, wondering if my dear friend escaped another attack at the WTC.
All work at a standstill as people gazed at the television monitors.

Thankfully, no one close to me perished. Nonetheless, it will be a day that will never be forgotten.
