On the morning of 9/11, I was at home getting ready for work. I was living in Provo, Utah at the time. My parents called me in the phone. They told me to turn on the T.V. The north tower had just been hit. I was amazed and sad that this had happened. My wife was on a business trip in Calgary, Canada. She was pregnant with our first child. I called her and asked her ” Have you turned on the T.V.?” She was in her hotel room in bed. Her reaction was silence. She couldn’t believe it. She was worried for her safety and and the safety of others. She later called her parents to talk to them. So, for a while my wife sat in hotel room watching the T.V. I went to work. I worked in Salt Lake City so I listened to the radio. On my way, the south tower was hit. I got to work. About an hour later, the owners walked around and told everyone to go home. I went to my parents house in Orem and we watched T.V. We watched the towers fall. Later, I went home. 9/11 changed mine and my wife’s life in that we were more worried about our safety,t affected our business, and we were a little bit more careful and looked around for Middle Eastern people whenever we were on planes. I think that this brought our country together in that there was a greater respect for our country, a greater sense of pride, patriotism, unity, and we forgot our differences.
