As a young ferry deckhand wanting to become a captain, my boss let me help deliver a ferry from Boston to NY in '98. After a 16 hr trip, at dawn, I stood on deck and was captivated by the twin towers and had my pic taken with them over my shoulders and a grin on my face. Every day, I wish I had gone to the top deck that day in 98. Now age 29, I am proud to be a Captain for NY Waterway the ferry co. that helped so many evacuate from the city on 9/11. Its not much, but thats my story.

Having only seen the WTC twins once in my life, the inundation of tv shows etc surrounding the tenth anniversary of 9/11 have caused a deep longing within me to see the twins built again-same towers, but instead of 110 stories-build them to 111! That would be a real slap in the face to those who attacked us. In this pic, the Freedom Tower is almost past the twins. The day WTC 1 surpasses 110 stories will be the day the people of the US mentally defeat our enemies. We will not be broken!
