A co worker and I were en route to the next stop on a normal, busy workday. His girlfriend called and asked us to tune in our radio and tell her what was happening, she had heard that the Chinese had bombed the USA somewhere.
She worked in a shopping mall, and they weren’t allowed radios or TV, so she had only heard rumors.
My fiancee and I had just decided to fly to Las Vegas at first opportunity and get married, so I was in a state of bliss. I turned on the radio and heard the reports about a jet crashing into the World Trade Tower. Followed by the second crash.
We radioed the office and the director told us to finish up and return to the storage lot, then go home.
In the months to come, work slowed, and I became unemployed. The marriage was at first postponed, then cancelled.
