Reflections on 9/11
didn't know where my family was. many of them worked in manhattan.
To me it was interesting to see a piece of steel from the World Trade Center. Everyone remembers seeing tv footage of the towers collapsing, over and over. But seeing the actual steel makes the whole thing seem real and impossible at the same time.
I think that 9/11 proved that a true hero is anyone who is willing to put others above their own fears. 9/11 also proved that crying wasn't a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength and love.
The missing person postings it really personalized it for me I was overwhelmed with sympathy and compassion.
The granite slab seemed to hold so much emotion- fear, loss and sadness.
