Were you an eyewitness to the mass murder of 9/11?
We haven't written about our 9/11 recollections. It's been too painful and still is disturbing for us to think about, even after eight years.
We had turned the corner on the way to work in Jersey City when we hit a traffic snarl. Why had the cars stopped at the top of the hill? My lord, we could see why.
Five miles away, across the Hudson we could see from our car that there was a fire in a World Trade Center tower.
Suddenly, oh my, the fire spread to the other tower! What was going on?
It took us a while to realize that we had seen with our naked eyes an act of unmeasured evil. The terrorist murder of 3000 people.
From that moment, the world has never seemed the same to us.
Have you recovered?
