nineleven is a short written by a husband trying to deal with the loss of his wife in the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001.

I don't want to tell too much of the story because it is so brief and compelling. If you have forgotten, even in small measure, the fear of that day or the swelling of American pride, this short story will remind you. It brings back my feelings of that day so acutely, even in middle-America, the emptiness, hopelessness, shock, and grief of that day and even the days following

Heart breaking but beautifully written.

This 9/11 short story got to me. It's not a typical type of story I read, which is one reason why I liked it. It's about a man dealing with the loss of his wife on 9/11 and it's a poignant reminder of the senseless horror that happened on that fateful day.

One passage in particular stood out and I highlighted it on my Kindle. It described exactly how my wife and I felt when we woke up on 9/11 in Las Vegas and saw the images of the burning building on television.

nineeleven by Donald Capone
his wife was in one of the towers, heading down from 80th floor. he rented a car and drove from FL to NY
listening to news on the way. he had dreams, so he saw what happened in this case and other events in his life
and the outcome.

on my kindle, short story. Hard to rate because of its theme. A man away on a business trip, dreams of what happened on 9/11 and of the lose of his wife.
