Six years ago. Wow.
I had been living in Texas for a year when it happened. I made it to the office and a coworker had the radio on. I was stunned. Everybody was upset and details were so sketchy at first. Most of us who were parents felt the impulse to pick up our kids from school. I did not do it, because I wasnt sure what was going on. Maybe she was safer there than where I was. I did not see any images until much later, and that made the whole thing feel quite surreal.
So much has happened since 9/11. While I don't agree or support many of the decisions of this country's government, and the direction they have taken us, none of that matters today.
Today is a day to honor the memory of the victims of this tragedy.
