I took my kids to the park this morning. So my thoughts about the day, such as they were, I had to write up in tweets on my phone. Since I live in Lower Manhattan, the fire houses in the area each have memorials and plaques with a half dozen or so firefighters killed from that station. As we walked down 7th avenue we passed one firehouse where the bulk of the men were leaving in dress uniforms, presumably for some memorial, probably at the Trade Center site. I thought I’d share them here, since I think they capture some of my main reflections on the day.
Watching dress uniformed firemen processing out of their stations
Watching tweets from diff sides of aisle, seeing two wholly separate worlds of remembrance of 9/11 attacks
Silent remembrance, commemoration, vigil vs some mix of calls for vigilance and war cries
Stumbled out o bed, tv left on from nite b4, just in time 2c 2nd impact, groggy, took couple mins to process what I was seeing #wherewereyou
