Anyone who can’t claim native Vermonter status came here from for a reason. I came here in October 2002 after living through the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City.
I wasn’t in the towers, and I wasn’t downtown, but I was in Manhattan that bluebird morning, stranded for hours trying to get back to my apartment in Brooklyn. After finding a working phone and letting my parents know I was OK, I walked south from midtown. All subway service had stopped. The closest I got to the Twin Towers was 41st Street.
