Remembering 9-11

Was it really nine years ago? Two wars and a changed world later, here we are. And so much has changed in my life since that it's almost incomprehensible. I do believe I began writing in response to that awful day.

I'm not going to say much. I'm just going to post this link to the website I designed for the City University of New York, my employer. I won the competition and I think it was working on this website that saved my sanity. It was this website that led me to the conclusion that creativity of any kind is the cure for the feeling of out-of-controlness all New Yorkers (and Americans) experienced on that day.

I hope you'll visit this website. It doesn't get much traffic, but it still means a lot to me. It captures exactly how I felt that day when terror rained down from a clear blue sky.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and recollections on 9-11 and the state of the world in general.

I'd also like to state for the record that the hatred that is brewing in this country is frightening to me. Intolerance is the most un-American of all behaviors. We owe it to ourselves and our constitution to be bigger than our enemies, not to become like them.

And let's all pause to remember those who died and those who sacrificed their own lives to save others.
