I just posted some of my 9/11 reflections in a blog post for Yahoo! Shine.
Initially I wasn’t sure if I wanted to write about September 11th — some part of me feels like I’m not “allowed” to feel anything about the anniversary, because I didn’t personally know anyone who died that day.

Despite not knowing any of the victims, I lived in Brooklyn and worked in Manhattan then, so the whole thing hit extremely close to home. I had nightmares about 9/11 for months. Anyway, I felt strongly enough about the anniversary that I felt compelled to write, well, something.
