The devastation on the other side of the country didn’t hit me until I got the final confirmation from the last person I needed to hear from after Hurricane Sandy hit. Very strange that both my sisters were there visiting. But now I know that my friends and family are safe. For some reason I couldn’t look at the pictures until then. Then I looked. 86th St. subway station Jet Star roller coaster in New Jersey. Ground Zero flooding. I burst into tears. It’s 9/11 all over again.
