I will not be in New York for New Years Eve. I will be there
in a matter of days.
Thats the big change.
Ive seen the Pentagon.
Its going to take me a few days to adequately describe the
It just like any large construction site
except you know.
Three things dictate a change in schedule. One is painfully pragmatic.
Im running up a tab on this journey well beyond what I had
planned. The second is deeply personal. Though I have enjoyed reconnecting
with old friends and making new ones
though I have at this
point a new appreciation for those who are on my team
I simply want to go home.
The third is hard to categorize. Ive looked at the Pentagon.
New York and the World Trade Center is a four hour drive away. December
11th is the three month anniversary of the day our world changed.
I dont want to wait. On Sunday evening Im driving to
New York. I will be in Manhattan for four or five days. On Tuesday,
December 11th I plan on spending 24 hours down along the periphery
of Ground Zero.
I dont know why.
It feels important.
