Where were you?
Where were you when you first heard of the attacks on the twin towers on 9/11/2001?
Obviously it’s on all our minds this weekend what took place 10 years ago. It changed so much of who we are as a nation and a people. Living in a military town, I’ve witnessed the sacrifice of so many because of that day.
Here’s my story of where I was:
I was in business at the time, but did a Christian radio program every morning at 9 AM. I left my office and headed to the radio station as normal. I walked into the station, the talk show on before the show I did was live, and the television had just interrupted to announce the first tower had been hit. I remember feeling someone in shock, wondering if it were even real. It usually takes me a minute or two to process the magnitude of things, but it was an eerie and sobering feeling I’ll never forget.
