A Rainy 9/11

They tested the Tribute in Light last night, which was good. Because we might not be able to see it tonight due to the weather.

I just flashed back to the 1980’s, when I worked near the Towers. Every day I’d come up out of the subway and walk through the WTC lobby. I was so young. And clueless. That always stands out for me when I remember my youth. Kids today are so much more sophisticated, and directed. I was pretty much stumbling through my life when I was in my early 20s. Now kids in their 20s are millionaire entrepreneurs and developing some of the most talked about shows on tv. Go kids go! We are all enjoying the fruits of your labors.

Pretty, but sad lights. Like many others, I wish they were lit all year round, but perhaps the people living nearby don’t feel the same. Plus, the cost.
