Today is 9/12. In New York City, it was foggy, wet and a perfect Netflix and chill day, if it was a weekend.
Yesterday was 9/11. For a short time, many of us stopped and remembered the nearly 3000 innocent souls whose lives were taken so unnecessarily.
As I walked around lower Manhattan this morning, I kept thinking that it felt like an ordinary day. People were going to work, to school and just going about their daily business.
And yet it wasn’t. 9/11 still surrounds the area. It’s akin to a somber blanket that both comforting and mournful at the same time.
The city, like her residents are not known for staying down for long. No matter what happens, we find a way to slog through, no matter how difficult it is.
9/12 is a reminder of that. Today is 9/12.
