My employer, Mercer, had offices in the South Tower of the World Trade Center and I spent many hours there on business in the 1990s. I loved the buildings from the outside as they reflected the sky and the skyscrapers, and from the inside as our conference room overlooked the harbor and the Statue of Liberty. Many of my closest friends and colleagues lost their workspace and possessions when the towers were destroyed, although all escaped safely. Almost 300 colleagues from a sister company, Marsh & McLennan, were not so fortunate and lost their lives in the other tower. The towers live on in my memory — losing their detail, a little frayed along the edges.
