I was on my way to work listening to KML on 98 Rock in Baltimore when they announced that a plane had flown into one of the twin towers in New York. At that time, we didn’t know that it was an airline and that a terrorist attack was behind the accident. When the realization of what was actually happening that day sunk in, I have to thank KML for the great reporting they did. I have about an hour drive to work and I had no way to get near a TV, yet when I finally was able to see the events replayed, it was exactly as KML described.
When I arrived to work, I immediately went to the internet. It is amazing the speed at which we get our information now. We were watching streaming video of an incident that happened shortly before. Because of the quick action of the media and the availability of the internet/tv, America became one as a nation that day. By nightfall of September 11th, we were in shock, yet strengthened as a nation. My greatest memories of that moment were watching the many stories on the news about strangers helping each other. We were resolved to find these terrorists and hunt them down. I hope we never lose this fervor.
I am proud of our nation, proud of the men and women that serve us in the armed forces, and proud that in a time of trouble, our president seeked God’s wisdom and acted without holding back.
