9-11 on a work day
I have to say - I know I went to work. I know I had clients in my chair. I just can't remember anything but disbelief and numbness.
The only memory that sticks with me is how people on the street , in the coffee shop, and the cafe I got my lunch at looked at me directly instead of through me and said Hello. I remember for the week following that total strangers struck up conversations with me wherever I went.
I end this little post with the one quote from that day that makes my heart swell with American pride and makes me tear up whenever I hear it or see it :
" Are you guys ready? Let's ROLL ! " -- flight 93 passenger Todd Beamer, just before he and other passengers attacked the hijackers and saved a hit on the White House. September 11
Now that is AMERICAN !
