Abstract: A disclaimer: what follows is a first-person account of my experience following the 9/11 attack. I’ve read over what I’ve written, and will warn you now that it is spotty and self-indulgent, repetitive, peppered with gaping holes from things I’ve forgotten or repressed. You will likely find it irritating – it’s essentially 8000 words of meandering, mawkish bleating – but it is fairly honest, and only minimally self-censored. One thing it is not in any way at all is a representation of the positions or opinions of the City of New York, or the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York. I left that agency at the end of 2015, after 25 years in service to the city; the thoughts and words here are my own.
