I was working in a rental shop close to the Calgary airport that day. I knew something was going on when the planes stopped coming and going all of a sudden. For the very first time since moving to Calgary the sky was quiet, no planes, no air traffic of any kind. Customers had stopped coming in and the ones that did looked to be in shock. At the same time the radio that was playing in the shop went silent and then the shocking news was aired. I went into the office to find the other employees huddled around the T.V, I walked in to see the second plane crash into the tower. I was in shock just like the rest of the world I didn’t know what to do. It was 8 years ago today and today was the first day I openly wept for the people in the towers
and for all of humanity.
