While it is a 9/11 picture, they don't show the plane, the buildings, the site, vivid reruns of the events. Mr.B's pushing and pulling is interesting characterization as it felt something like that to me too.

The mother's revelation was a good part of the story for me. I never suspected. Seems it made the son have warmth for his mother and trusting relationship to a degree he hadn't had before. Some of the things he admired in his father he also found in his mom.
Terrific story about inner growth. Of course, some of the 9/11-related vignettes were very powerful for me — in a you had to be there way. Especially the sidewalk memorials. My office at that time was on Park Ave. South, btwn W25 & W26 Sts. and there was an armory directly behind our building that was used for a few months as a temporary morgue to handle the overflow from Bellevue. The building facades on all four sides of that block, including our own and those on Lex along the eastern side, were covered corner to corner with the notes and photos and please for information about loved ones... It all came crashing down on me again.
Well, I didn't lose loved ones that day. But I did lose a few friends and had friends that lost family — mostly on the ground, and one on Flight 11. My pain was more superficial than it was and still is for so many others. The months after the attacks were just... weird. As if reality had been suspended.
Last year there was a deadly tornado in Joplin, MO about 100 mile SE from here. But I have a niece who lives about twenty from there. Her son had two very close friend killed in the wreckage . It really hit them hard.
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
My son works at the Hyatt Regency Reunion Arena in Dallas, TX. One of his coworkers lost his house in the tornado that hit Lancaster, TX about a week ago. My son said it was sobering. All family members were safe & he did have insurance, but that doesn't replace memories or personal memorabilia that was forever lost.
