...perhaps it's best that I direct readers to some excellent postings about 9/11 by other people.
Paul reminds us of facts, and follows them up with an extraordinary, very personal account of a day spent in front of the tv.
Carly offers a very different remembrance of that day, some thoughts on related issues, and some useful links.
Bea prepared a class full of children for the news the school declined to announce. (Two part entry)
Patrick reveals why his memories of 9/11 involve a stranger named Joshua.
Shelly was close enough to smell the smoke.
David Angell - comedy writer-producer
Joshua Birnbaum - bond trader and musician
Thelma Cuccinello - grandmother
Dorothy Alma DeAraujo - artist
Jake Denis Jagoda- energy trader and former charter boat skipper
John Frederick Rhodes - senior vice president and family man
I'm sure there are tons more worth reading, but you get the idea.
Since it is now 9/11/06, I suppose this is my last chance for this year to try to find something new to say about what happened five years ago.
Sorry. Can't think of a thing.
Fortunately, Paul, Carly, Bea, Patrick and the rest did have something to say. Read them.
