Osama bin Laden’s death — 10 years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — has sparked remembrances of that tragic day. WBUR News Director Martha Little shares her thoughts, and asks for yours.
For many of us, Sept. 11 was a day that triggered many emotions and many profound personal moments. For me it was how the event suddenly changed the view out my window. I lived in Los Angeles at the time, on a house on a hill that had a view of that downtown full of skyscrapers. What once was a lovely view of sparkling buildings became a view of foreboding. I imagined over and over again what it would look like if Boeing 767s and 757s full of passengers were sent careening into those skyscrapers. It was a view full of fear.
Now that I live in Boston, I’m interested to know your reflections, your realizations, your memories of that day. Please share in the comments.
