I was there. I had oily ashes in my bathtub. I had to work nine days in a row because of scheduling and it was good to have a place to go to and do an important job.
I still get choked up when I see any movie about the day or watch documentaries on t.v.
I went down to visit the site much later as I could not bear to see all the pictures on the fences.
I was really gratified when the leader of this infamous attack was finally rendered into the next plane, and I do hope that Osama bin Laden’s journey to his afterlife proved less than paradisical.
In fact I found that a quick and clean shot to the head was much too lenient a form of justice, but that was at least a final solutioon for him.
It is too bad that this virulent form of hatred for strangers still lingers in many societies.
