My first attempt at writing a September 11 post was so woefully inadequate that I trashed it. I could not find the right words at all.
Then my imagination went into overdrive, as it so often does, and a thought hit me: what would it have been like if Twitter and smart phones had existed ten years ago?
Oh my God.
We would have been glued to not just the images on television, but the live twitter stream, the actual people.
There would have been hashtags to follow.
Twitter is instant and powerful. Would information have spread fast enough to change anything? Cell phones made a difference that day. It is not impossible.
The tweets might have been preserved and posted somewhere, just as the names of the people are today.
Today I am remembering and trying not to imagine the unimaginable.
Peace to you all today and every day.
