I think if it had been a week or two latter when the gravity of the entire event had sunk in, I may have acted. Glad I didnít.

Never Forget!! My brother lived in NY a mile away from the towers and my dad was in DC at the time on business while my mom was home alone and me in college. I wish my greatest memories were as crystal clear as the trauma I remember so well.

I always wondered what the memory was like for people who experienced Pearl Harbor decades later. Now I know. Itís vivid.

NY Mets scores 9 runs on 11 hits today in a 9-0 win over the Arizona Diamond Backs. You canít make that up.

Awesome and sad at the same time.
