Do you remember where you were when you first heard about the plane crashes on September 11, 2001?

Yes, I do...I was driving into the parking lot here at work when I heard it on the radio.  We have a TV in our breakroom and everyone was glued to it most of the day!  We will never forget.

How about you?

We all say "be grateful for every minute," but days like that bring it home HARD.

I wasn't in the car like you two, but I'd already done a fair amount of driving to the ER in Chapel Hill and then home because I was having one of my neck flares.  Left the house around 5 am after a sleepless night, cried on the way to the hospital, cried on the way back because they didn't give me anything for pain, just a prescription (since I was driving).  DH dropped the kiddos at day care and then went to work.  I went to bed.

I woke up a short while later when he phoned and told me to turn on the TV.  The first plane had hit the WTC, but it was still standing.  Turns out I wasn't cried out yet after all - lots of tears shed that day.  Is it too much to hope we never see anything that bad again?
