Would someone please tell me that we all took major drugs and will wake up tomorrow with really bad hangovers and the towers will be back>

I work about a mile from what used to be my symbol of home...... Smoke is STILL there, third building collapsed, fires are still raging.

I do not understand a mind that could conceive of and execute such a plan.

As far as I know, everyone I know who worked in those buildings is safe. But I don't know where everyone I know works.

A friend's mom worked in one, halfway in to work today she turned around and decided to call in sick.

Same friend's husband is a Port Authority cop (the PA owned and ran those buildings).... his beat was those buildings. It wasn't his shift.

I have more stories like that.

I know I live in a dangerous world. In a dangerous city. But this is surreal. I keep expecting David Copperfield to say "tada" and have the buildings reappear. didn't he make the Statue of Liberty disappear once?

I need a hug. And a very STIFF drink.
