10 years after that Tuesday morning, watching all the video and news reports still brings those feelings back. Shock, disbelief, sadness, anger . . . watching footage of the planes hitting, the towers come down still makes me physically ill. We spent the day at home, watching the news, watching a few of the tv specials about 9/11. It's all still horrific. But what stood out most strongly for me was the sense of humanity shown. At least here, in North America.
Last night, we drank a bottle of that most American of wines, a Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon. It wasn't by design. Just didn't know how else to mark the occasion. I wasn't personally affected by that day. But you don't have to be to feel the horror and profound sadness. My God. Ten years on, it still hurts.
