Here are three panels from a new commemorative plaque on Greenwich street, right next to WTC site, on the wall of the firehouse. Walking by it, across the street from the Deutsche Bank, I still smell that same smell of destruction we could not help but breath in that morning. It brings it all back in much too real a way.
But I had to come back, as I do every year, to remember those who were lost, and to give thanks for not being one of them, and finding my loved one safe at the foot of the towers. For that I am, and will always be, so grateful.
