Ten years have passed yet it seems like it was only yesterday. There really aren’t any words to describe what happened that day in 2001, but everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing when they heard what was going on in New York City.
I have wonderful memories of visiting the World Trade Center back in the late 1980’s,…. that’s all I’ll say. Today is a day for remembering, to never forget. Here in France, the French have not forgotten either. It’s been on all the tv channels throughout the day, a mass at Notre-Dame and a ceremony at Trocadéro.
The same question goes through my mind as it did ten years ago. How can such evil exist in the world, in the human race? But at the same time watching all the documentaries yesterday and today and seeing all the heroic and unselfish acts of countless numbers of people that day, it brings hope that there’s more good than evil in this world.

Maya Muses: When you watch all those people who jumped from the World Trade Center and you know that they had only two choices to die; one to burn alive, the other to jump. They jumped. What we learn from 9/11 is anyone who works in a skyscraper should take sky diving lessons and a mandatory item that everyone should have in their office is a parachute. Imagine the lives that could have been saved if everyone had taken out their parachute, broken the windows and jumped to safety.
