Just remember

We checked out of the hotel on Sept 10.

We spent the whole weekend in NYC. First chance for everyone to see the baby. First chance we had a moment to ourselves.

We visited my friends and former co-workers in One World Trade and Seven World Trade.

Ma dukes worked in Seven World Trade. Spent that day – the 10th – showing off her grand-daughter.

We ate lunch at Sbarros because we wanted to get on the road, beat the rush, come back to Maryland.

Everything was business as usual until the next morning.

I remember the phone call from my boy telling me to turn on the tv, asking me if I spoke to my mom. I remember busy signals – dialing every number and extension I knew. I remember going down the list, checking for friends, family, uncle in One World Trade, cousin nearby. My neighbor working at the Pentagon. I remember hours going by and still not hearing a word from anyone except cuz. That dude has a way of just surfacing. Damn busy signals. 11:30pm – finally heard mom’s voice. Deep breathe and said a prayer to Thank Him. I remember going to Ground Zero weeks later by myself. Had to do it by myself. Had to see it by myself. I got off the train at Fulton St and start shaking. Nervous. Afraid of seeing a picture on the wall of someone I knew. I walked up and down Broadway in a daze. Stopped at that Church on Church St and just stared.

I remember actually like our P.resident for like 2 seconds when he sent those planes over there and started shooting everything up. The rebel in me was glad. 6 years later we still can’t find dude but yet he drops a video tape every year like it’s a new album. Some things just don’t make any sense.

By today, I remember those innocent souls and bravehearts…..
