Just wanted to post a quick note about those who lost their lives on 9-11-2001.
I don’t think I will ever forget where I was that day or at that minute. I was in a computer training class for a new job when Aaron called my cell phone to tell me that a plane had hit the twin towers. I don’t think I really grasped what he was saying at the time. I remember thinking like a 4-seater plane or something like that. He said it was a jet, like a commercial jet. Since I was in a computer class I was able to get online to see what was going on. Needless to say that we didn’t learn a whole lot about the software we were supposed to be learning about that day. All I could think about were the people on the plane, then the 2nd plane, then when the towers fell, all those who couldn’t make it out. The the plane in Pennslyvania. Then the Pentagon. I just wanted to go home and be with my family, hold them close to me and never let them out of my sight again. All I did for the next few days was watch the news, in shock and in horror that something like this could happen in our country. We were so much more vulnerable than I had ever imagined.
So today I am taking some time to remember those who lost their lives and their loved ones. We will never forget you.
