as always, my heart and prayers go out to every person, and more close to home, every single new yorker, whose lives were forever changed by 9/11. i know i was never the same.
i am not at all prepared to say much of anything right now. there is a mass of emotions welling up inside me that i’m not at all sure how to express: shocked, scared, excited, bewildered, sad, etc. it’s all just very big, i can’t think of how else to describe it right now. but as a native new yorker who saw first hand the devastation and terror caused by osama bin laden, i can only hope that this will bring peace to all the lost souls and all the families and friends whose lives were shattered by this man. will this make the world a safer place? probably not. but tonight i sleep a little easier knowing that at the very least, it is a better place, a world with less evil in it than when this day began.
