Ok on a non political tangent, when I came home from work it was difficult not to be glued to the set as more details unfolded.

It took time to countenance that I'd actually been to the top of one of the Towers on my first visit to the States back in 85, and now both were gone in such a devastating manner.

Going back to the site a few years ago was an eerie experience. Seeing all the notes asking for information of missing loved ones was truly humbling.

It was one of the most political and politicized events in modern times. It changed the geo-political map of the world for a generation. Very difficult to avoid the politics I'm afraid Fi.

I realize that, but I'd rather just read where and what people were doing.
