Nah. Honesty is never in the cards. Spin. There’s enough Internet around thankfully to piece together a more honest story though, thankfully.
I’m here. I’m not as worried about getting hurt personally. Selfish? yeah, but I was supposed to be in one of the WTC buildings between 9/10-9/15 (not one that got hit but across the street) for a ridiculous training I didn’t need. Talked my boss’ boss out of me going. Had no idea how GREAT it was that she agreed, just that I could stay at work and finish my project.
So, I was lucky. I got to see one building standing and the other one a plume of smoke from the 7th story parking garage at work. Very surreal.
If I went I’d probably have nasty lung problems to this day and would’ve had to walk home down a LONG bridge, and knowing me, I would’ve forgotten my lunch that day.
So, I’m just glad for what I’ve got. Best anyone can do I think smile emoticon
