9/11 – Where were you??
I was in the worst position ever. You see I had a female exam appointment at 9:00 that day. I was somewhere within this exam when the World Trade Center was struck by the first plane. I left my appointment completely unaware that the world was changing.
I go to my car and my cell phone was beeping (very strange for me, nobody calls me). I had missed 19 calls. They were all Adam even stranger.
Apparently something awful had happened to him. I called expecting to hear that he was in an accident, but everything was okay. You see at this time he was over the road and I didn’t see him but only on the weekends. I think that is how our marriage survived for so long…anyways.
That is when I learned what was going on in New York, but he was safe and headed for Virginia.
I watched the news for a few hours and cried some especially at watching the video of the second plane hit. I tried to keep it off after that though and concentrated on other things. I think I actually cleaned.
I am not sentimental though about too many things. It is one of my bad traits. Sometimes I appear not to care about tragedy. I do care… I just don’t get all caught up in it a lot of times and this is one of those times even at the mass scale. I knew 3 people in the building, and all 3 of them survived.
My life sort of immediately moved on even while so many were in such distraught conditions emotionally.
