Fighting to Live as the Towers Died
From their last words, a haunting chronicle of the final 102 minutes at the World Trade Center has emerged, built on scores of phone conversations and e-mail and voice messages. These accounts, along with the testimony of the handful of people who escaped, provide the first sweeping views from the floors directly hit by the airplanes and above.

On this Memorial Day weekend, there's a moving story and lots of photos today in the New York Times about the first 102 minutes of the WTC attack. I am surprised that it's still as heart-wrenching for me to read the accounts today as it was when it happened. What I need is assurance that this can never happen on American soil again. And I wonder if I'll ever feel secure here anymore.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
