I was in Philadelphia on 9/11 and my best girlfriend was in NYC. Her brother Thomas Holohan Jr. was one of the firefighters from Engine 6 who responded that morning. After the towers fell, no one wanted to believe there were no survivors and everyone kept up hope that somehow they had found their way into the tunnels below the WTC and were safe and waiting for help. I went to NYC to be with my friend. I remember how eerie it was walking around a quiet NYC and on each corner there were hundreds of lit candles and even more flyers that people put up of their loved ones.
