Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

I was to work the afternoon shift. As I was getting ready for work I decided to put the television on for a while. When the news interrupted broadcasting I watched in horror. When the second plane hit, I wept for souls I did not know. Then more planes and innocent lives were gone before our eyes so close to home. The phone rang and a supervisor asked me if I would like to stay home, as work slowed to a standstill. I said no, thinking to myself, I do not want to be home alone with all this terror and sorrow. But as I watched and cried, I finally called work and said, if offer still holds, I want to stay home. I wanted my family, friends, and neighbors with me so I could try to make sense of all this horror and loss. There is no reasoning that I have found except that some people are so hateful about things that they do not understand. May America Stand Proud. God Bless Those that we lost and their loved ones… United We Stand
