This text was all I needed in life right now:

"Wow! So surprised!! Nice to talk to U!! Today is 9/11 (in Japan.) 10/23 Niigata earthquake... Let's move on... ARIGATO! LOVE" :: Mieko

Been watching 9/11 footage for the last number of hours. My brain needs a break. My emotions need some rest. Every victim, survivor, hero, witness, child without a parent, parent without a heart and respect and thoughts are with you.

I've been living in the city for almost five years. It's officially a decade later, and though I was in an Arlington High School Math class watching it all unfold, I feel the city breathing.

Breathe in the positivity, and breathe out the pain...
