Nine years ago, the twin towers stood in New York City. That morning as everyone began work for the day, 2 seperate planes flew into each tower, starting fires and the eventual collaspe of each tower. I remember I had just arrived to work and someone said that a plane had accidentially crashed into one of the towers in New York. Within a few minutes, we knew it wasn't an accident. I remember trying to call Jim and not being able to get the call to go through. The lines were jammed with calls. I remember being afraid for my children who were away at college. I remember watching the news in the principals office for the greater part of the day. I remember following all the news stories for the next few weeks as the details were discovered. There was a third plane that crashed in Pennsylvania. This summer we stopped at a rest area on the Pennsylvania turnpike that was near the crash site. All of these planes were passenger planes. I remember 9/11/01, like it was yesterday.
