Seven Years

It’s hard to believe that it has already been seven years since that terrible morning in 2001. I’ve blogged about how I spent that day in an edit bay, editing footage from the scene that was feeding in from Washington, New York and Pennsylvania.  I’ve talked about watching interview after...

After September 11th
