I was in a high-rise office at One Battery Park today and hoped for a good look at the Freedom Tower at One World Trade Center. Alas, the Big Apple was a rainy, cold disaster today — but the tower in the clouds was still kind of cool.
It’s another anniversary of 9/11, and it has been strange to be in the New York City area, just across the river from lower Manhattan and the site of so much carnage and chaos on that fateful day. When we walked across the bridge this morning and saw the new One World Trade Center building rising above the skyline, it brought all the awful, painful memories back and gave me chills.
It hurts to remember, but we must never forget.
