Year by Year goes by and the memories still haunt me…Seventeen years later.
This is 911 Memorial Mental Health Humor cartoon…a recurring nightmare I have of paper falling in the gray sky. Looking at the cartoon makes me feel a bit anxious and stressed. So, if it does that to me, and talking about 911 is a trigger…Then do not read beyond this point.
911 Haunting Memories – Trigger Warning
The toll for 911…2,977, but the toll keeps ticking – as one person recently tweeted: “With many from ground zero still getting cancer & many have died.” “And so many have been afflicted with PTSD.”
That day, I was only watching the live footage of the Tower burning with paper falling and dropping from the building and I have this recurring nightmare. Then watching live at 9:03 a.m. with half the world seeing tower two getting struck…Paper raining down – but this was no parade.
The Haunting Images of this Paper Falling seared into my mind forever changing my view of life.
Today, a day to remember, and I can’t help thinking that my most haunted memories are not just the paper falling.
It’s the who–that are among the falling papers–they haunt me the most.
