It has been 3 years now since the twin towers fell. For better or for worse, the world is a different place. Of course, it is a different place everyday - babies are born, people die, we live and breath and grow. Still, there is the profound impact that this kind of event has - an impact more profound than any natural disaster, be it fire, flood, earthquake, hurricane or whatever - an impact more profound than the daily round of unnatural disasters like collisions, falls, industrial injuries - more devastating to the psyche than wars far away, or famines, or plagues. It was so up-close and personal, even for those of us who had not even a tenuous connection with the victims and survivors.
In a couple of hours I will be getting on a plane to fly home. It is sad and ironic to me that I will be flying on this day.
