Just An Ordinary Morning? Turned Upside DownWell, i went to work like a lot of others that day. i saw the buildings from my office window, and i turned around just as the second tower fell. they let us go home, it was moving in slow motion and everyone just quiet. i went home and worried about my fiance at the time getting home, and he did. he didnt work in the towers. he worked in a hospital just out side of manhatten.
I found out in days to come that a friend of mine, who had been in my wedding party had lost his life, he was a local fireman and ran in to help the others and never came out. they never found his body and around 700 people where at his memorial service. i dedicated a song book at my church to him.
Since then, i remember driving into the city to see the double lights they turned on that first nite, and my daughter and I went into see ground zero, oh 2-3 weeks if that long after it happened. i dont look at the pictures anymore.
i ask God to bless all those families hurt in that horrible tradgedy.
