Can you believe it’s been 10 years?
I was working at the Gap. It was the first day of my third year of university in the afternoon. I got a call at the store from a lady who needed the New York Head Office phone number to get in contact with her daughter. She said two planes had crashed into the World Trade Centre. I didn’t believe her. I hadn’t seen the news. I really hope she got in contact with her daughter. In 2005, I went to NYC for the first time and was lucky to visit St. Vincent Hospital where pictures and notes of the victims were posted. Posted is one picture from the tribute. It was so heartbreaking to see all of these notes and pictures there years later, right across from the other tribute of Tiles for America. The pictures are no longer there but the emotion, the reality still remains.
