I was working in the Home Entertainment Dept. in a Dept. Store. We had our display televisions playing a cartoon for kids, when a women walked by and said to me that she thought the t.v.’s would be airing the attacks on the WTC and the Pentegon. My body went numb then it seemed like I just couldn’t hear anymore. Then like Jennifer in Conway,AR I was 8 months pregnant with my daughter and a 5 year old son at home. When I went on my break and witnessed it myself on t.v. I looked at one of my co-workers and said I felt bad I was bringing another child in such a terrible world. Work didn’t seem to matter anymore I just wanted to go home to my son and love him so much more. When my son was born there was the tragic death of Princess Diana, and when my daughter was born the tragic, tragic death of so many innocent people. My heart breaks for you all. You may be far but your close at heart.
