I remember it very clearly. I walked into our living room on that tragic September morning and I saw my mother crying. I don’t think I’d ever seen a human being that upset at that point in my life. I remember seeing the news report on television as well, the tower burning. My mom must not have seen me walk in. I doubt letting her 4-year-old daughter see such death and destruction was something she would’ve wanted. I also remember when the second plane crashed. My mother just screamed in terror.

After that, no idea. Although I can see her calling my dad who was at work at the time to talk about it. Don’t know if it really happened though.

I love the site. Never forget.
