Now it's been 17 years since the attack on the World Trade Centers and, on one level, it seems like it happened just yesterday. In fact, the train station at the ground zero reopened just last week - after having been closed for the entire 17 years!
I'm writing this post in my office, in the same building where I sat when the first plane crashed into the north tower.
Here is my post from last year (which, in essence, mirrors my earlier ones on the subject):
It's hard believe that 16 years have gone by since the cowardly terrorists destroyed so much on September 11, 2001. Despite the physical destruction - and the loss of so many innocent souls - our collective spirit survived intact and emerged from the ashes. Today the Freedom Tower rises in the former Twin Towers site. We have rebuilt and our lives have go on - despite the horror and sadness of that day. And for those reason, we must never forget what happened.
Never forget the evil.
Never forget the survival.
Never forget the innocent souls that didn't survive.
