One sunset, when I was a NYPD Police Officer back in August 2001. I was returning home with a van full of my fellow officers after doing security for a NYC summer event and I quietly looked up at the World Trade Center. I kept saying to myself “wow, that is an awesome site to see. What a great city and country”.
I remember turning my head as far as I could, because I wanted to continue staring at those gorgeous buildings. I couldn’t understand why I was so fixated on staring at those buildings so intensely.
I am so glad that I had that moment, because it was the last time that I saw those buildings in one piece.
