Reflecting On 9/11

Reflecting On 9/11

Ground Zero: September 13, 2010

I’m sure I’m like a lot of Americans on this day. It’s hard to look at the date and not think about the morning of September 11, 2001. I think 9/11 will always be that way for me. Without question, it was one of the most emotionally draining days of my life.

So… for me… it’s a day to reflect.

I think back to the day itself when this seasoned news reporter was an emotional wreck, and the day years later when a Port Authority cop allowed me to shoot on Ground Zero. Each are worth a day of reflection.

This past weekend, 60 Minutes had a feature on the 9/11 museum that’s under construction. It’s definitely worth watching. The museum looks like it’s going to be pretty amazing, and I look froward to seeing it someday.

I also look forward to taking my daughter there when she’s older. I hope it helps her understand a time when we saw the worst in humanity followed by the best.
