100 Words - 31

I took the train into Lower Manhattan and the WTC many times for work. My office was just past “the bull” off Broadway. I would walk outside and marvel at the sheer beauty of the buildings, dizzy each time I looked up. I was there the week before 9/11 (after a meeting reschedule), two nights at the Marriott in WTC. When I think that such a random meeting date would have meant life or death, it sends shivers down my spine. My heart will always ache for every person who gave their life that day. It could have been me.
