9/11 is still influencing the northeast

New Jersey has the US flag up on all overhead walkways over the highways.

New York’s Penn Station has multiple soldiers and police hanging about.

NJTransit has a permanent announcement up on the flashing signs to “Report Suspicious Activity.”

The Borders had a five minute test of its fire alarm. I’ve spent LOTS of times in bookstores and never sat through a fire alarm before.

We didn’t make it to Ground Zero, but we saw that it is still impacting folks around here.

And understandably so, they were here. It happened here, in their back yard, in their front yard, in their home.
