9.11.06

I can’t write today. More accurately, I can’t think of what to write. A personal anecdote seems too selfish, as I was not even in Manhattan five years ago, forced instead to watch my city beaten and bloodied from worlds away (or, at least, it seemed so) in Connecticut. On the other hand, a list of victims’ names cannot convey my own sorrow, bewilderment, anger, pride, and hope as I reflect on this anniversary that, year after year, has more resonance than any January 1st ever had.

I’ll say only this: I love New York, today more than ever. And, if you are grieving, my thoughts are with you.
