I work in the city almost everyday. Pretty much 99% of the time. Naturally I'm downtown today by Wall st. It's business as usual today. Nobody is apprehensive or on edge. It might have been on everyone's mind on the way in this morning but that faded quick. New Yorkers don't get rattled too easily. We just keep it moving and come what may.
I posted this in case the rest of the country was curios about what we do in the city every year on September 11th. We don't waste time dwelling on that day years ago. Mostly because it's a part of us. People in other states may take a moment or two to be reminded of what happened but we don't need to watch the news or listen to the radio as they read off all the names. We are the names. Our friends and family members and neighbors that went down with towers are as familiar to us as anything we already know.
I do miss the skyline though. I gotta admit that. The new tower just doesn't have the same majesty that the twins had. Oh well...
If my dog doesn't doesnt go to heaven then neither am I.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Have been thinking of that day..but we all move forward. Good to know how the city is doing!
I miss the skyline as well. The view is not the same when you fly in there now.
Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
The first time I went to NY was in 2000 saw the twin towers and got photos next time I went the were gone and such an eerie feeling and since going again saw the new building being built. New York is my favourite place in the world.
Two little having fun together
The most horrific day in my NYPD career...and the following 3 months I spent down there. I still can't talk about it. Its always there but words never seem to do it justice.
I'm a good girl, I promise
