Manhattan Loft Guy

Sep. 10, 2006 - September 11 read the names

It turns out that I am most definitely not able to post much of anything today, and still unable to read (let alone watch) what passes for media coverage of the fifth anniversary.
Please click on http://www.september11victims.com/september11victims/ for a list of the people who died that day at the World Trde Center in Manhattan, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA (with personal profiles).
As this is a blog about Manhattan real estate, please reflect as you read the names on the many places around the globe these New Yorkers came from (or their families came from in an earlier generation). A terribly sad, terribly potent cross-section of the global village that is Manhattan.
Pray in whatever way makes sense to you … for the people, their families, the world.

I understand perfectly what you mean, Sandy. I have not understood how folks could sit in a cinema & watch the two recent movies on Sept 11. I, for one, cannot possibly bring myself to. I did watch the ABC film last night because I want to always "remember." I did not personally lose anyone to the tragedy, though a very close friend was running late to work at the wtc due to caring for her mother. But regardless of that, I am cut to the chase, as we all are. let us remember that the world suffered in this loss, as many of the murdered were foreign nationals. My prayer is that God will bring peace AND justice to our planet... soon.

Thank you for your heartfelt words. I'm in CA, and we felt it here for sure. I've posted a message about today on my blogs and also on my website. If I lose a client for being "poltiical", so be it. It's too important. I hope that today, we as a country can be united again.

IVAN  --  Different strokes for different folks. "Even" here in Manhattan, people's tolerance (appetite?) for 9/11 commentary, pictures, reflections varies tremendously. Some people with seared memories here read or view everything; not me, though. MICHAEL  --  Funny, I don't see this as "political". It would be political if I got into why this country is divided about 9/11 "and related issues", but I ain't going there today.... Sandy
