In late September 2001, I found myself in New York City just days after 9/11. I was there on assignment, documenting the story of a Bronx woman who lost her brother in the attacks, as well as visiting with a Manhattan chaplain who knew all too well the pain that tens of thousands of families were going through following the sudden, horrific loss of their loved ones.

And there's lots of fun stuff happening: We have a licensed driver, a permit driver and a 13-year-old who likes to back my car out of our driveway ‘for practice.’ I have to say it’s strange imagining the little girl who once dove—yes, dove—off the top of a slide ("because it was faster") behind the wheel of a car.
