I know exactly where I was... Do you?
We had a family owned business in Gilbert, Arizona and I lived within walking distance. Not a care in the world as I strolled through the park... I will never forget the look of fear and shock that my parents and co-workers had that day when I walked through the front door.
Or the phone calls that followed as we tried to find family and friends. We almost lost a dear family friend that morning. She was 5 minutes late for work and was in the lobby of the South Tower when the elevator came crashing down.
My heart goes out to all the victims and their families. To all the first responders who didn't run from, but into a living hell.
Life is precious
