I was young but lived right by Jamaica Bay at the time so I was pretty close to everything. Especially scary was the aftermath of military jets going in and out of JFK and not having any idea if there was more to come. Just anticipation.

My best friend at the time lost his father. My cousin who my mother spent a lot of her life raising lost her best friend. My parents lost one of their close friends. It's tough every year looking back. I finally went to the 9/11 memorial this summer and it was haunting. It's awful to think about how much our world has changed since then.
