11 Sep 06 September 11, 2006

We’re sitting at home tonight and every station is broadcasting an address from the President talking about the fifth anniversary of September 11, 2001. It is a solemn day. It still seems unbelievable to us. We cannot imagine what it must have been like here on that awful day.

The New York City we are getting to know is cautious, but boisterous and incredibly friendly. On the subway today, multiple announcements were made about the need to be aware and vocal at the slightest concern. It’s comforting to see such vigilance.

Last week, I flew from New York to St. Louis and was happy to go through detailed security checks both to and from St. Louis. Funny though, I did manage to sneak through with my toothpaste and shaving cream after the shakedown. What a rebel (with good breath and a close shave).

To be honest, I was just going to leave this entry blank to represent how speechless we are. We have nothing to contribute that will ease the pains of history, but we have unlimited hope for the future. We also thought that those of you not here might wonder how we’re reacting to the day. All I can say is with quiet and thoughtful observance.
