September 11th

Twelve Years Later

Has it already been twelve years?

I've written this before, but it bears repeating so that I will always remember where I was on September 11, 2001.

Written in June, 2009, after the death of Michael Jackson:
"I was the assistant production electrician for the Michael Jackson 30th Anniverasry Concert at Madison Square Garden. We worked for a solid week getting this rig together  - by solid, I mean 16 hour days - and the stars that performed that weekend included Usher, Ray Charles, Liza Minelli, Britney Spears and the rest of the Brothers Jackson. There were two concerts, one on Friday night and one on Monday night celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five. After the second concert we worked all night to load out the show and ended at about 10am... on the morning of September 11, 2001."
You can watch some of the concert video here. It's a little eery watching the crowd having so much fun and then thinking that less than twelve hours later, the feeling would be so different.
