Like all of you I still vividly remember where I was and what I was doing on that sunny September morning a decade ago when the unthinkable happened. I was at my business just watching television and sipping coffee...I couldn't believe my eyes and at first thought it an aviation accident like the 1947 striking of the Empire State Building....It soon became apparent how outrageous, grim and depressing the situation was.
For days we lived in a malaise of grief, but my first reactions were an uneasiness about what war would mean to a nation not accustomed to such things.
In any event, life moved on and today we pause to recognition the passing of a decade. No one could sustain the intensity of emotion of that morning, and while events were amplified by the coverage now available, life has to move on from this or any tragedy or loss. It's never easy and I think I can only take so much coverage today. I plan to watch the US Open and JETS opener in addition to this morning's 9/11 coverage.
Where were you and what were you doing that morning ten years ago ?. Feel free to comment.
