For My Second Home

Having grown up in New Jersey, New York City was a second home for me and the World Trade Towers were like old friends. I live in Florida now and could not completely comprehend the horror of that day from here, but I got an eerie feeling when I went back up North to visit in 2002 and my cousin took my family and me to Ground Zero. She still lives in NJ. In the City she pointed out many things, but what stands out the most for me was looking at the insides of the store windows where everything was just frozen in time and covered in "after-dust". She told me how human fragments were still being removed from A/C and heating vents of buildings in the immediate area.
