  1. I am in the Empire State Building looking north (opposite direction of the World Trade Center). Your post view is looking south, likely from the GE (formerly the RCA) Building: pretty much across (west side of) Fifth Avenue from St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

    Twelve years ago, our offices were downtown.

    It was, as heroic SEALS say, “no easy day.”

    “May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.”

    I remember the nuns taught us whenever we hear a siren of an emergency vehicle to say a little prayer for whoever needs the help and also for the brave men/women rushing to their aid.

  3. Reading the 9/11/13 meditation in “Magnificat”, one is again made aware of survivors still suffering the physical effects of that monstrous act of hatred and stupidity twelve years ago. May God give them all the gift of His endless love and consolation.
