9/11/11 - Ten Years After
Do you remember where you were that terrible day ten years ago? I do, and I remember the aftermath. No, I wasn't at the WTC, hell, I wasn't even in NYC. I was thousands of miles away here in Texas. I remember watching as the first tower burned. I didn't see the first plane hit but recall people saying what a terrible accident it was. Then we all watched in horror as the second plane came around and crashed into the second tower. Then we knew it was no accident.
I was working out near D/FW Airport at the time and recall the days following the attacks. It was almost eerie not hearing the constant jet traffic that normally flew in and out of one of the busiest airports in the U.S. Even worse was when a lone fighter jet would scream overhead and scare the hell out of us. Eventually things went back to normal, or at least as normal as they could be after such a horrendous event.
So, where were you that day? What do you remember?
In honor of this upcoming anniversery, I will be posting the Indie Author in the Spotlight on Saturday instead, along with the Guest Author Interview.
