I canít believe itís been five years. The memory of that day is still so sharp and clear. I will never forget how I felt.
Although I only live about 75 miles north of New York City, I havenít been able to bring myself to visit the site where the Twin Towers used to stand. The pain is still too fresh. I knew someone who died there, but thatís not what keeps me from the site. Itís more than that. So much more.
The images from that day Ė images that I watched over and over and over again Ė are burned into my brain. I can see them vividly with my mindís eye whenever I allow my thoughts to turn in that direction. Maybe someday Iíll be able to visit the site, but Iím just not ready yet. It still hurts too much.
But I havenít forgotten. And I wonít. I canít.
