Just Gotten Home

I had just gotten home the Friday before.  My wife was in St. Louis for a business trip.  I was calling her and asking if she was okay and how was she getting home.

Her regional manager and other drove back.

I on the other hand was with my kids and was remembering my trip to New York only 1 year earlier with my walk down the 7th street from MSG to Battery Park, and going into the WTC.

I was just back in NY last year and even though it is 8 years later the people there still weep for the ones that were lost and get defensive and emotional about it.

We need to remember!!!!

I was at work. One of my co-workers came to me and told me that a plane flew into the world trade center. I didn't beileve her. She was trying hard to convince me. I didn't want to leave my painting station at Fentons. Then it seemed that everyone was rushing over to each others desk and milling about. I finally got up and left the room to see if anyone else knew about it. One of the decorators had a small TV at her desk, she showed the TV screen to me. I couldn't believe it. Then I saw the second plane hit the other tower. It was sureal.
