This is one day that the memories flood back so easily. We’d heard something happened and I called my mother in law to ask her about it, just as she turned on the news I heard, “Oh my God!” as she witnessed on tv the plane hitting the 2nd tower. One of the Sisters we worked with saw the first plane as she was driving in.
The horrified looks of the faces of the firemen & police as they learned about the events of the day.
The quiet. Oh, the quiet as all the planes were grounded.
The grief continued as we learned about Flight 93 and the Pentagon.
