We're Still Standing

I just realized that August marked my third blogiversary. I didn't begin posting with any regularity until the spring of 2006, but still. Times flies by.

This will be the first time since 2003 that I've been in the city on 9/11. We were living here in 2001, as well as 2002 and 2003--before we moved to Michigan. Now we're back in NYC and it is good to be home again. But this is always a hard day.

Mr. Kitten took some amazing photographs that day that I posted here.

Another 9/11 story here.

A bit more about the photo above.

I don't know if you were aware that Pete worked on the 102nd floor of the South Tower, and 250 of his coworkers died that day. Pete for some reason went to the NJ office instead that day, and everyone there wept as they heard the news. My first nephew was born three weeks later. September 11th continues to be a solemn day for my family. Pete now has three kids.

I find it very hard to look at photographs even now, seven years later. I'll never forget those graphic TV coverages and I can still feel the horror and sadness I felt then. It was a dark day in history.

Happy blogiversary. I think it would be very sobering to be in NYC on 9/11...
