Big Apple -
I'm sorry I said fuck you.
You've been through a lot. Today reminds me of all we went through and how it made me realize in stark terms - how much I love you and that there is NO PLACE like you in the world. When other people ran out of town - we stayed - even though we were scared of what might happen - because we weren't going to abandon you.
Five years later and it still really hurts. God bless all of those souls and their families.
