I’ve never participated in this sort of project before, but today I visited Anna Carson’s blog and decided to to join her Project Yellow.
This is the doorway at the end of the World Trade Center subway station in Lower Manhattan. These doors, temporarily covered with yellow tape marked Caution, Do Not Enter, used to open into 5 World Trade Center.
On September 11, 2001, I came out of the subway and was heading through these doors when I heard that there was some kind of a fire in the building. I should have just turned around and gone back home, but I didn’t.
These doors, no matter how many times I pass through them, still lead me back to that morning.
