Lyz Glick, wife of Flight 93 Hero Jeremy Glick, has published a book of letters to her husband and 3-year-old daughter. Unlike the hyperpartisan “Jersey Girls,” a group of shameless Bush-bashing 9/11 widows, Glick avoids politics and refuses to discuss policy and legal matters:
Glick has resumed teaching anthropology classes online from her home for Berkeley College in New York. She opted not to do a tour to promote her book, saying she didn’t want to leave her daughter or be asked for opinions about political or legal issues.
Now in pre-school, [daughter] Emmy is a sweet-tempered child with her father’s broad smile, out-of-control curls and strong will. She loves dressing up in Disney princess garb — Pocahontas for Halloween — and she is surrounded by people who love her, her mother said.
Emmy hasn’t asked many questions about how her father died, but Glick has consulted with a therapist on the best way to answer.
At the end of August, around their wedding anniversary and Jeremy’s birthday and just before Sept. 11, Glick again pulled out the videotape of her husband and baby daughter. She doesn’t do that often, but watching it reminded her of that early fear of forgetting some tale that Emmy should know, and how it led her to the task that has nurtured her as well.
“When you have a love like that, it’s imprinted in [you],” she said. “It was a very good process for me to go back and pull out these stories from his friends. A chapter closed in a very real sense,” she said.
“But to hear his life, his voice again, I smiled inside myself. I could never forget that.”
