I was an opening shift manager at a wendys here in ohio. I remember that day so well. The open was going good so at 8:55am I headed for the bank. I smiled at how blue that sky was. Its strange I didnt turn my radio on that day, I always have it on. When I got back to the store my GM called (also one of my best friends)she told me what happened, they had watched it on the news during their GM meeting. She told me to tell the crew. Now that was hard, but I did it. Then I called my Parents, My dad answered I guess he looked at the caller ID. He said baby we are under attack. That was hard to hear. I remember everything I was wearing a blue manager shirt. I remember we had a radio going so we could hear the news. We also listen to our customers radios. It was strange we would on a normal day say thanks have a good day, but it was either thanks or a nod of the head. I remember our manager meeting we got a new manager and we all talked about the attacks. I remember I got taco salad to eat but just picked at it. I remember driving home and pulling up at my parents. I lived with them then I was still in college. I remember just hugging my dad and the way that sky was so perfect. Then I called one of my friends and we talked for hours about it. I remember talking to her and how the sun came in my bedroom window. I would lay there at night with my radio on, hearing all the infor.I had nightmares for along time. I would dream we were being robbed and someone had a gun to my head. The last time I dreamed it I woke up but wouldnt open my eyes. I thought someone was there with a gun. I was so scared my heart racing, I did open my eyes after a few minutes and I realised it would be okay.
