I remember my coworkers running across the street to buy a TV so we could watch the news at work.
I remember seeing the smoke plume from a field near my house.
I remember a filthy dirty warehouse where we loaded supplies onto a ferry to go across to the workers searching through the debris.
I remember no planes in the sky.
I remember our parish mourning the loss of almost two dozen people.
I remember us all sitting in mass, tears running down our cheeks as we sang hymns.
I remember friends who moved away because they were "supposed" to have been in the towers that day, and couldn't live and work near New York anymore.
I remember how life stopped for a while.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescant in pace.
