Sara Seinberg, on her submission:

"I remember in 2001 how I realized that for Americans, the sky would never be the same"...

"in New York and in Washington DC, our buildings fell. For days there were no planes overhead, just traveling birds, and we watched in loops on our televisions or out our windows as fax machines and bodies clamored to the ground. We watched as people jumped, windows exploded, glass heaved itself in daggers at pedestrians. We finally became members of civilization while the newsmen of the world hurled expletives at the people on those flying planes. We took our place in the post traumatic stress of the sky. We would never again look up in the same way. That was a beginning. That was a new way to be. And the birds have never looked more majestic."
