Et Tu?

It started over the Labor Day Weekend. Magazines hit the stands with commemorative anniversary editions.  NY1 seems to running heart-wrenching stories on a 24/7 loop.

Even while making a grocery run to get ingredients for vegan lasagna Tuesday evening I was reminded of the upcoming anniversary of 9/11.

Et tu basil?

Made in NYC no less.

 

I’m torn in regards to where to be, what to do this Sunday.  While I’m considering going home with my sister – my parents live less than 2 hours away – part of me wants to stay put in NYC.

About all I know at that point is that I will post a short piece about my experiences on that day 10 years ago in NYC along with a companion piece written by an I HAVE CAT reader living in London.

How do you plan to commemorate the day?

  • I am Canadian but I remember it well. I was home alone, aged 16, and my mum had just taken my cousin to the Toronto international airport to catch her flight to the UK. You can imagine the chaos they encountered downtown when the planes hit. It goes without saying that her flight was delayed a good two weeks. I also remember the non stop chatter flying about my high school about how the Pentagon had been hit. It was on everybody’s lips, and no one was able to pay attention to the school lessons, not even the teachers.

    • The must have been scary to be alone at that young age……it does seem like yesterday in so many ways…..so raw still

  • In quiet thought and remembering. Blessings to all who died or last loved one on that tragic day. We got married in New York and it is a special city that will always have a place in our hearts.

    • It’s so overwhelming…sometimes i wonder how it is we go on each day…but sadly we have to forget to a degree on a daily basis or the grief is just to much to handle…..

  • I will DEFINITELY take time to think and reflect. Will probably watch specials that I am sure will be on TV. I know NBC has one tonight with Brian Williams that I am going to try and catch.

    • part of me wants to watch them and let myself cry..the other part is trying to protect my sanity…how to walk the fine line…

    We’ll spend some time in quiet reflection, to be sure.  So strange this morning … my normal walk from GCT to the office felt heavier somehow.  The NYPD gauntlet to slow the southbound Park Ave traffic only served as a further reminder of how things have changed since 9-11…

    • Yeh….everything is making me jumpy..this morning the fire trucks where going someplace and they sirens were so loud it really rattled me. My folks want me to come home for the weekend but i worry about leaving my cats alone…i feel stuck in two worlds…one that wants to avoid it all and another that wants to wallow and cry and remember.

    We all have such personal reflections of where we were that day, the profound sense of disbelief, confusion, loss, and anger that we all felt in one form or another. I will spend the day with Dan and my kitties, but will be sure to reach out to my Mom in particular. No matter the cirmcumstances, we always find time on September 11th to call one another and share a private moment of blessings for what we have, as well as to grieve for what we lost.

  • What we WILL do is remember all those innocent people who died, and the bravery displayed during those scary days, and to meditate on sending healing energy around the world.  What we WON’T do is engage in the self-centered emotionalism that the media seems to be promoting.
