I Still Remember September 11
I remember a co-worker coming in later than I did and saying over the cube partition that a plane had hit one of the towers. She didn't know details and I thought she meant a small little plane. Then someone turned on a tv and we found out the real story. I lived /worked an hour's train ride to NYC, so a lot of people from that area went to NYC to work. My area lost 8 people. A community memorial service was held several days after, and a community chorus I sang in was asked to participate. I remember the 8 limos carrying victims's family members enter the park where the service was and getting out of the cars to take their seats. The family of one of the victims was from my church and it was so painful to see them under the circumstances.
