A blog I followed asked readers to write about where they were on 9/11/01. This particular blog writer is a college student which means she was probably the age of my son on that day.
One of the people who responded was a 9/11 survivor. Her post is so understated, and so powerful, that I wanted to share it with my readers.
So many coincidences.
A cousin of my spouse worked on and off in the Trade Center but was not there that day.
A former co-worker, who worked 4 blocks from the Trade Center, had come in early for a meeting. If he had come in his normal time, he would have been exiting his train station near the Trade Center at the moment the first plane hit.
The brother of someone else I know had worked in the Trade Center but had been recently transferred to another office and so was not there.
But others I am connected to through others-family, friends, co-workers....were there, and never returned home.
I can not name them all-I do not know all of their names. But here are some of them-a small roll of honor.
