Remembering 9/11

I don’t even know how to write today.  Watching the news coverage brings me right back to that day ten years ago.  I think of my friends and their families who were directly affected by the events of that day.  And I can’t help but think what they are going through.  I was working out of town in DC that day.  My apartment was across the street from the FBI building.  My roommate was from Florida.  Our office building was evacuated after the plane hit the Pentagon.  My roommate and I invited our fellow consultants over to our apartment since the traffic in DC was at a stand-still.  Neither one of us thought we would be personally affected.  However, when we got back to the apartment, my roommate learned otherwise.  While watching the coverage on TV, she got a call from her then boyfriend, now husband.  His brother, who normally didn’t work in the World Trade Center, was at Windows on the World for a meeting that day.  After the plane stuck the tower, he called his family to tell them that he loved them.  He never made it out.  Although I never met you, Garth Feeney, I will never forget you.  It is obvious from the love of your friends and family, the world will never be the same without you.
