How I loved being a part of something impacting individuals, families, even the entire community. The phone interrupted my thoughts. My friend and neighbor Jenny asked, "Have you seen the news?" Deliberate words etched from her mouth as she described the unfolding news report of a lone passenger plane striking one of the twin towers. My stomach flipped. The details of my room, my outfit forever engrained themselves to my mind. This was an indelible moment.
I arrived at the office. Every television featured live feed of the Twin Tower, Pentagon updates and Flight 93. Silence consumed the day. What was there to say? Sympathetic and fear-filled tears flowed from everyone's eyes.
Where were you? Do you remember? Your comments are welcome.
