9/11: Two years later
Just a thought from 11 September 2003 about .

An incredible thing has been percolating at Fray this week. The students of East Side Community High School in New York City have been visiting the site as part of a classroom project. Every morning I'm greeted by a fresh batch of posts.

Two years ago today, these students, some of whom were only in 5th grade at the time, witnessed the Twin Towers fall just across town. This week they visited Missing Pieces and posted over 150 stories about September 11. Reading these stories gave me a new insight to the tragedy, and the childhood memories we keep forever.

What are your missing pieces?

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “9/11: Two years later” that I wrote on 11 September 2003.

Before this, I wrote a little something called “Coming to a sidewalk near you” on 10 September 2003. After this, I wrote “Potty mouth” on 11 September 2003.
