My heart still goes out to those directly effected. Although we all were in one way or another, it had to be tougher on those directly involved. My brother in law lived in the Bronx at the time & worked in NYC. He & many, many others walked home that day as they don't typically have cars in NYC.
I was in NYC sometime after that, but it was winter time. My friends went to see ground zero, but I was kind of glad that I could not go see that sight. I don't think I could bear the thought of all the pain involved at that particular place.
We really do live in a great country!!
~Blessings to all~
