9/11 is forever etched in my memory. Anyone who experienced the tragedy has a permanent, emotional connection -- the impact of which changed our lives and the world we live in forever. I was sitting on my couch; I was crying; this was real. Like so many, I was dumbstruck. My first reaction was to help... but what could I do? I lived in Montana. So I prayed. It was so horrific, it was all I could do. I prayed for comfort, peace, understanding. Understanding never came, and I am still heartbroken by how one people could enact such hatred and violence on humankind. After 10 years, I still cry.
Janette Reynolds' book "Where Were You on 9/11?" is a reminder of that event -- how we all came together as a nation, and joined emotional hands evoking our outrage, sadness, shock and tenacity to rebuild. Each interview provides a glimpse into lives focusing on a single moment in time. There is a strength and comfort knowing one is not alone. And I applaud Reynolds for wanting us to not forget.
From the Foreword by Donald Trump, to the interview of a New York city cab driver, Reynolds offers 20 intimate interviews from that fateful day. I personally loved the interview With Stephen Baldwin -- I found it comforting and spiritually uplifting; I could also relate to the fears of a mother (Gloria Allred) for her daughter, (Lisa Bloom), and the frantic reach across the miles for some assurance of each others' safety.
Reynolds has given us a collection of remembrances, from people just like you and me. The more I read, the more I applaud Reynolds and say, "Thank you -- lest we forget."
I found myself doing more skimming than reading. Too much filler. Too few truly compelling "Where were you" stories.
Controlled demolition of the buildings
So-called hijackers turning up alive
Cell Phone calls from airplanes at 10,000 feet
Most of the hijackers were Saudi yet we invade Iraq and Afghanistan
And much more...
The official story of 9-11 is a joke and Trump parrots it in his book as if it is fact. I think this is dishonest and shameful.
