It’s been almost a decade since terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers, taking the lives of nearly 3,000 people. Countless more were added to that number suffering from the after-effects; from early stages of cancer effecting first responders to those dealing with the toxic clean-up afterward.
The emotional tragedies from PTSD cannot be overlooked, neither can the suicides connected in many ways to that day.
I did cartoons for the window cleaning industry and I was at my drawing table when it happened. As the second tower fell, so did my heart. It would be almost 7 years before I would pick up that pencil once again. So, every year, I take time to remember that tragedy and I place my pencil down to do that!
