#FarrisStory: A 9-11 Story From Manhattan

"Here is my cigar with a friend story. On 9/11, I was in lower Manhattan, and I was evacuated on a tugboat. As the tug was leaving Manhattan on its way to New Jersey, the man standing next to me, a stranger, lit up and offered me a cigar too. He said he knows smoking is probably not allowed, but given the circumstances, he needs it to calm his nerves, and should be ok on that one day. I lit up, and we silently smoked together as we watched the former World Trade Center site burn." - Aaron from Ridgewood, NJ
