I started my day as usual by getting up and getting ready for work. One difference was that my husband was home sick that day, and had the TV on. I was in the bathroom blow-drying my hair as usual, getting ready for work. Suddenly, my husband comes bursting into the bathroom, yelling something in a panic. I suddenly felt terrified, and thought something was wrong with one of my children or a family member. My husband then led me to the TV and said “Oh my God! Look!” I could not believe my eyes. All I could do was stand helpless, with tears in my eyes, in horror and shock, calling out to God to help all those in need.

A painful lesson learned on that tragic day, is that if I love someone; I need to say it and he or she needs to hear it, because life is simply that unpredictable.
