So many thoughts come to us when we think of 9/11 - as evidenced by much of the material being posted in the last several days. This is my contribution in these "very last minutes" before the anniversary of 9/11........


 


Writing a report for the boss


Phoning home to apologize for the fight


Feeling nervous on first day at work


Calling the doctor for the lab report


Talking to the boss about a raise


Watching a pretty girl pass a desk


Straightening a tie in the bathroom mirror


Gazing out the window at the blue sky


Filing folders in the cabinet


Typing a letter to the company president


Flirting with the cutest guy in the office


Deciding where to go for lunch later


Feeling the baby kick for the first time


Talking to a friend about having an affair


Worrying about Mom in the nursing home


Calling the travel agent about vacation plans


Talking to a financial counselor about bills


Thinking about the kids’ new teacher


Taking an aspirin for a hangover


Straightening the desk before the boss arrives


Composing a resignation to take that new job


Gazing at the flowers sent for a birthday surprise


 


Every day occurrences in the twin towers….
Unremarkable in and of themselves, yet
Being performed for the last time……ever…….

I probably won't get to read all the tributes at AD for the tragedy of 9-11 but it matters not. This is the very best. Why? Because it puts such a personal, very intimate face of those who died that day. Thank you for writing this, Pam and you know this is not BS.
