This is the third time the author has written about 9/11. On the 13th anniversary, she considers how her life and ours have changed since that fateful day.

In 2001, I lived in New Jersey. I was married with two children who were not yet on their own, one in middle school and one at Rutgers University. My only sibling, a brother seven years younger than I, lived not too far from me in Staten Island. He worked in New York as a loss prevention manager at Macy's. Every work morning, he took the subway that traveled under the Twin Towers. Our parents remained in New Orleans, where we grew up. And then there was that day we all remember: Tuesday, September 11.

On that epic morning, world history seemed to pause, freezing America in a nightmarish moment, taking a snapshot of us devastated.

well done
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 9/11/2014
Well written and informative. Yes, your life is certainly changed greatly. My life hasn't. All those external historical events have affected me, but not my personal life except for financial ones, causing great danger to my existence in retirement requiring to pay three people get out of bed and writing every day. I too, have lost my father. And my mother has been diminished by mini strokes and loss of hearing, now required to be an assisted living. My biggest regret is failure to travel and see old friends and relatives. Otherwise, life remains quite constant here in Houston with continual growth and gradual change neighborhood by neighborhood.
