On 9-11-01, i was a the hospital in shreveport. i had worn a cast for 10 weeks and was hoping to get it off. it was supposed to be a good day. but it was the worst day of my life. sitting there watching those buildings burn and tumble to the ground with all the other people at the hospital, you realize how small and insignificant you are in the world. my heart goes out to all the people who died and all the people whose lives will never be the same. it was very scary being in shreveport, louisiana because president bush flew in to nearby barksdale air force base from florida. the thought of that sent a chill down my spine. i will never forget the day my cast came off because it was the day the world will never and should never, ever forget.
