After ten years…

I’m supposed to be working. Yes, on a Saturday. I have CNN on in the background, which is showing a TIME’s special on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. It’s a series of stories told by people whose lives were entangled in the horrible events of that day.

My first ever trip to New York some six months after that fateful day was a personal milestone for me. Not only I was able to immerse myself in the city I’ve only ever seen in movies and tv series but I got to see the aftermath of 9/11 with my own eyes.

When I was back in the city in 2007, the vicinity of ground zero had changed, although reminders of what happened in 2001 were still there.
