..Shortly after 8:00 am Local time, I arrived at my work (major metropolitan hospital). As I am making my way up a stairway from the parking lot to the main building, a coleague leaving after working the night shift said: Did you see the thing in the USA with the plane?…
I answer, umm, what thing with the….
Im interrupted by my pager, I keep walking towards the staff room, as I read the pager´s screen = GET TO A T.V. ASAP, BIG AIRLINE ACCIDENT IN NY.

As I raise my head, I see more than 10 coworkers glued to the TV set in the staff room…Not a word spoken! Silence.
It took me about 20 minutes to realize images were real.
Im not a very religious person but my prayers that day went for the innocent lost , and for a clear headed President Bush.-

Im absolutely certain they were heard by God.
