I was working from home on September 11, 2001 and heard via instant message that a plane had struck the World Trade Center. Nothing was visible in the sky from Long Island. I remember how sunny and quiet it seemed the next day at Hofstra. I remember how vulnerable I felt and still feel since that day. Still, the anniversary is for me a day to be thankful I was nowhere near the impact and no one I knew was affected.
In the summer of 2002, Dave White submitted "Closure" to Thrilling Detective, and editing it was my privilege, my small contribution to our national mourning.
