Twelve years and one day ago, this was the last thing I saw after work as I went to catch a train home.
Really. This is how it looked. I worked across the street. I had to use the World Trade Center station to get home.
Every adult knows where they were 12 years ago today, when the nightmare began. But some of us remember where we were 12 years and one day ago, because we spent our working days in or near these buildings.
But we have to remember the stories of the people who were in the buildings that day:
And those of us who spent years of our working lives there realize that a minor change in our schedules … an earlier arrival at work … could have meant that we wouldn’t be here now, remembering the most horrible day of our lives.
