today i deviate from the normal posts. before i had the good fortune to live here in dublin, ga i lived in NYC for several years. i was there in the city that morning. I was just getting out of the subway minutes after the first plane hit. i saw the second plane hit with my own eyes.
it’s one thing to see disasters unfold on the news and in movies…it’s unimaginable and very surreal thing to be right in the middle of it, running away with crowds of other people, seeing a look of fear in every single persons face around you. i saw things that day i wish i never did, but i also saw people come together with a sense of community and helping others in ways i’ve never experienced since. take some time today to be thankful for what you have and for those around you.
these are a few pictures i took from that day and days after.
