Don't be sorry.  You're completely in the right to say what you need to say about this subject.

CatsCradle, in response to your original post:


I am so sorry you are going through this. You sound like a caring person, full of empathy and love. The victims of 9/11 include the survivors, because you have to live with the pain every single day. I pray for the ones who were taken on that day, and I also pray for you and all of the people who lost loved ones that day. I pray for us all, because we all lost something that day. It must be so difficult for you, since you have to live right where it happened. I never thought about it, but the dust would certainly bother me too. Is there anything you can do to help yourself feel better--maybe join a support group? Help with a 9/11 charity? Try to do something positive to help yourself get through this terrible situation. It is brutal, and on a daily basis I find myself hoping for a world without the pain and violence. 


Thank you for being a good person! This world needs more like you.
