7 Years Later...

(photo taken by Chloe at Ground Zero in 2004 - wreckage from the Twin Towers was used to form the cross on this now hallowed ground)

7 years have passed since 9/11/01. As many of you know, all of us here at Tales are and were at one time or another New Yorkers. Today is a tender day for us.

You can visit our September 2006 archives to read a few pieces we wrote about our personal recollections of 9/11 (or there's a complete list here). I have found it difficult to read those pieces on any day other than 9/11 - it's just too painful, too raw even 7 years later.

But we are resilient...and 7 years later we are here raising families, working, serving, loving, living. And that is what I will focus on today, 9/11/08.



  • what a beautiful and haunting photo, Chloe...thanks for sharing and remembering.

  • its hard to believe it's been 7 years. The more time I spend in NY and the more I become a new yorker the harder it is for me to read about all of it and the more my heart aches.

  • I can't believe it's been seven years, too. DH and I were just saying that last night. Thanks for posting this today.

  • I love the cross there at ground zero, nice pic btw. I actually drove by ground zero some time this year and it was the firs time I had been back in a while. It has changed so much. It's strange to see it look different...foundations being laid, construction paraphanelia.

    Last night I drove into town bleary-eyed at midnight and I saw the flag at half-staff and I was like: what happened? (I have been isolate in the mountains for a few days and out of touch), and then it all came flooding back to me. Oh yeah, 9/11.

    And at 8:45 AM this morning, at the exact time that we remember 8:45 AM 7 years ago, I texted my husband: call me when you get off the plane, I want to catch up.

    Haunting that he had a flight today, and that they are even allowed.

  • I will never forget the moment I found out about this terrible tragedy... like most of us... we remember exactly where we were, what we were doing and the shock that filled our body.
