|Claudia Dowling and Donna Ferrato, TriBeCa evening, 9/10/2014|
Thirteen years ago today, Donna and I were thinking about how to cover the unfolding tragedy at the World Trade Center. We wound up going to Oxygen to do documentaries, which wound up being about sex and violence, as projects with Donna so often do.
Tomorrow Donna launches her new campaign about survivors of sexual tragedy, "I am unbeatable," with a show at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. I helped her write the copy for the exhibition. Be there, if you're in the neighborhood. I can't be, because of someone's fourth birthday party in Providence. Life goes on, even as all lives end.

There was also a birthday present for someone turning 4 this weekend, but I can't reveal what it is.
Hint: We have no bananas, but plenty of other edibles and a six pack of cocola.
Tomorrow: New York City.

She and her husband met on line. "I still remember seeing her at the airport in China when we met," he says. "She was wearing this blue dress, and she looked so beautiful. She still fits into it too."
Now her son from a previous marriage is in college, her mother is growing the bok choy in their garden and they just celebrated their tenth anniversary.
Saw another sign of the area on a T-shirt: "They can''t take these guns away." Girl was wearing it right over her bazookas.
