Today marks the fifth anniversary of the tragic events at the World Trade Center. I’m sure we all remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we first heard about the collapse of the towers. I was sitting right here at my desk working on my computer when Becky called from work. She said everyone was being sent home because the towers collapsed. I remember balking at the thought because I just couldn’t believe it. I turned on the TV to watch the news. I remember the first time I saw the clip of the second plane hitting the second tower. I thought it was an animated graphic showing us what the reporters “thought” had happened. Once I saw the explosion and the wreckage of the plane coming out of the other side of the building, I knew it was for real. Too many innocent people lost theirs lives that day.
Pray for my Mom. She is going to visit my Grandmother and is flying today. I am sure the events of five years ago will be on everyone’s mind.
