Re: [PHOTOS] September 11, 2001 Aftermath

Posted by Mitch45 on Wed Sep 11 10:34:50 2019, in response to [PHOTOS] September 11, 2001 Aftermath, posted by Bill Newkirk on Wed Sep 11 10:07:43 2019.

I saw 9/11 happen before my eyes from the window of my 18th floor office at 110 William Street three blocks east of the WTC. I saw the flames, the people falling, the buildings collapsing, the smoke and the ash. I heard the screams from the streets below, heard police and fire sirens suddenly hushed. I felt the rumble on my floor caused by the falling debris.

I remember every detail of that day without exception, as if it just happened. The only other day in my entire 54+ years on this rotten planet that I remember with equal clarity is the day my father died very suddenly.

I canít even look at these pictures without feeling physically ill and wanting to cry. It all comes back - the horror, the grief, the feeling of utter helplessness in the face of pure evil. I just canít.

I saw a therapist for awhile after 9/11. He was pretty sure I have a form of PTSD from witnessing it.

I will never forget 9/11. No matter how long I live.
