Everyone and their dog will have something about 9/11 in their blog today I guess, so why should I be any different?
I hate 9/11, but not for the reasons most of you hate it. I hate the memory of it, because it takes a time in my life where I was in the middle of making probably one of the most spectacular business errors of my career in the adult industry. That date will forever connect me to a time, a place, and a person who turned out to be a massive negative influence in much I did for about a 3 year stretch.
I arrived in Las Vegas early (about midnight or 1 am) Vegas time on 9/11. That’s right, I got off a plane about 5 and half hours before the first plane hit. I will always remember the exact words that were used to wake me up, just after the second plane had hit. “you are probably going to want to see this”. Not that long after, the towers came down. It was a truly sad day. For me, it is sort of a weird thing, because as I said, the event and the annual press hoopla puts me back into a place and time that I now realize was the very shit end of a very stupid will goose chase.
So for me, 9/11 will forever be tied not only to terrorism, death, Bin Ladin, and all that came with it, but with a series of truly dumb business decisions.
All that being said, please take a few minutes out of your day today to think about the thousands of people who died, were injured, or who lost family and friends as a result of this attack. Take a moment to mourn the loss of innocence that the US experienced as a result of this event, and take a moment to remember all the freedom and lightheartedness that has been lost as a result of these attacks. We will never travel the world the same way, we will never be at peace in our travels, and we will forever look at airplanes and air travel in a different way.
