My mother, wearing a white collared blue wasted dress with a soft petticoat, nylons and white pumps, waved me out the door to join the other neighbor kids walking to school. She had risen before the rest of the family, prepared a well balanced breakfast for us. Poached eggs in milk over buttered white toast, bacon, half a grapefruit broiled with brown sugar on top with a glass of orange juice. I never did know what she did the rest of the day while I was in school. I just assumed she…Continue

Frank Reagan(played by Tom Sellick), the almost too handsome Police Commisioner on Blue Bloods, often remarks, "Where were you on nine-eleven?" He says all New Yorkers will always remember where they were when the South Tower collapsed.
