Many people who have lived through the horrors of 9-11 feel that they thought they saw the biggest disaster of their lives, but no one expected that they would see a pandemic as well. When crowds clap and cheer to honour essential workers at 7 PM each evening, they recall the cheers for rescue workers heading to the WTC site and those who offered them meals.
