"Missing the Twin Towers"
Thursday, September 20, 2001
I have never lived in New York City, yet my first response was to 'create' something that recalled the buildings that were lost (I made a poster, but there was no place where it could be placed in DC on Wednesday evening).
For what it is worth, my first thought upon seeing the plume of smoke from the Pentagon (I worked down river from it) was to wonder how the biological/chemical attack would manifest itself. I am profoundly grateful that there appears to have been no such attack.
While I was drawing up the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, my daughter (13) wrote a poem. As a bit of Americana, I will share it with you:
