Today I visited the World Trade Center site for the first time since 9/11. Because my children live and work in New York, I and my wife have visited the city a number of times since the attack on our country. I had not visited Ground Zero previously, because I was emotionally unprepared to deal with my own experience of 9/11. My children and I were very close to the events of 9/11 and as a matter of luck, or providence, escaped. I know that this is the "survivor's perspective," but what perspective would you expect a survivor to have? Anyway, I decided, on this trip to visit my children,that I would visit Ground Zero. I have completed most of the transformations that 9/11 initiated. I have gone from liberal who flirted with the Left to serious Conservative. I have abandoned the secular atheist humanism by which I lived my adult life in favor of a sympathetic understanding of faith. We celebrate the Sabbath, which we observe with prayer on Friday evenings. My transformation coincides with that of my family. My son evolved toward Orthodox Judaism and Zionism after 9/11. My daughter, later, decided to move to the church. I have taken the study that I devoted to intellectual analysis on behalf of materialism and post-modern psycho-social constructionism and rededicated it to exposing the shallow (and in retrospect, simple) mistakes those philosophies exemplify. I have moved from embarrassment about America to profound patriotism for our country. This member of the generation of the 1960s has come home. On this trip to New York, I finally felt (feel) ready to confront the unwisdom and evasions of my past. I visited the Ground Zero to pay my respects in my own way. Photographs, which I admit are not revealing, are in the World Trade Center Site album. Nonetheless. Never forget.
