When those planes hit?
Jen and I were woken up by the phone ringing, on the other line was my father-in-law telling us to get up and turn on the TV we are under attack.
I turned on the TV and watched some brief coverage before I went off to work. As I was working I was listening to talk radio, it was surreal. Right in the middle of listening to the Dennis Prager show, I told my boss that I was going to leave. I needed to drink a beer and try to adjust to what I was hearing. I went to Hooters, all the TVs were tuned in to news stations, every TV in the place. There were quite a few people in there, everybody glued to the TVs. I cried, was sad, got angry, not believing what I was watching. The sad thing is, right before I left, I said to myself, somehow America will be blamed for this, and from within. Sad to say but that was my thought when i walked out the door.
I will never forget this day 18 years ago when those planes hit. God bless America, and God bless those who lost their lives 18 years ago today.
Today has been a strange day.
