I had not been at work very long (a credit union) when I walked into the break room and the TV was on and the were talking about a plane hitting one of the towers. At first I thought it was a small plane....and then as I stood watching as the second tower was hit. I could not believe what was happening.
I never in my lifetime thought that something like that could happen in our country. I remember seeing the video of President Bush when he was told about it. I can only imagine what must have been going on in his head at the time.
The rest of the day was eerily quite....I don't think we had one person come into the credit union that day. I remember getting home and turning the TV on and thinking about how to talk to my son about this...he was 8 at the time..my daughter was only 3.
I remember standing outside that night...looking up and not hearing any planes at all...with the exception of an a fighter jet from Patrick AFB once in a while. Our country will never be the same again and I truly hope that we do not become so carefree or relaxed to think that it will never happen again....because just as soon as we do..that is when we will be hit again.
