  •  Can't you see everything (8+ / 0-)

    from New Jersey????

    Not to be a downer here, but I flew back from my sister's funeral on 9/10/2001 into Baltimore (I still had an apartment there).  I had a flight out to CT on 9/11/2001.  Needless to say, it was cancelled.

    I had a meeting on the 13th.  Incredibly, I was on Amtrak to New Haven on the 12th.  After being terrified underground at Penn Station, when we arose to daylight across the river, the scene of smoke and no Towers was almost paralyzing.  I'll never forget that day.

    Then I had to pick up a friend in Burlington, VT who had a meeting in Canada but made it across the border by bus.  Great "OMG when's the next shoe going to drop sex" and a long, long trip in the rain on the Taconic Pkwy to CT.

    TMI?  Healing takes a long, long time.  And it is never complete.  Wounds have scar tissue -- like the new tower.  The scar tissue is still an ugly reminder.

    Sorry, eric.  I don't mean to depress your most excellent social reality.
