I Read the News Today, Oh Boy

Ground Zero

I live a few miles from Ground Zero.  I will never forget that day. I walked home three and a half miles from work.  I could smell the smoke.

The next day, the city was silent.  No planes, few cars, few people on the streets.

The company I worked for at the time insisted we come to work.  I walked there. Couldn’t even find a newspaper until I got to midtown. I saved that newspaper from September 12, 2001.  I think I shall go buy today’s paper too. 

Still trying to absorb all this. Back to regular programming tomorrow.
