I was at home watching Oprah when a special report broke in saying the first tower in New York had been hit by a plane. Like many others, I’m sure, I thought it was an air traffic control problem at first or some horrible accident — no one would have thought terrorism back then.
And then my phone started ringing — my sister, my mom, my husband. One son was away at college and one was still in middle school and I remember wanting them home with me right then.
It was all anyone could talk or think about for days, the shock and horror of it all. Even now, it still can fill me with sadness for the senseless deaths and injuries that day.
Do you remember where you were on 9/11/01 and how it affected you?
