S & H

A moment in history.

Eight years and approximately 16 minutes ago (I've been trying to post this for almost an hour), I was on the roof of the AT&T building, with a somewhat distant but fairly clear view of Manhattan, watching the first of the two towers collapse. We were sent home before the second one followed suit. While comparing to thousands, if not millions, my experience with 9/11 was brief and impersonal - as I was reminded last night, some things you just can't unsee.
