NOW, Roberta and I will get corny: "What the world needs now"
That's Dionne, not Roberta

Ironically, I was forced to take care of business that dreadful day 18 years ago also. I'm sorry Uncle, you're better than I am. I can't use the word forgiveness here. And I fear that there are many who are looking to conveniently forget. So many died, not just that day but since due to first responder related cancers.

I find it amazing to this day that I do not know anyone personally who was killed that day. But it seems everyone I know lost someone. We all mourned, regardless of whether the loss was first hand. I had many friends and family that were in the towers but made it out. My first cousin was in the WTC when it was bombed was in 1WTC again on 9/11.

EDIT: Adding my SO worked at the area identifying remains for over a year.
