Where were you on 09/11/01 . . .

I was heading to the University of Tampa for class and work. Heard about the first plane on sports talk radio that my Dad had on.  No one was fully aware it was an attack at that level yet. Class of course was cancelled, and my mind was reeling as I learned a second plane had hit. In the Honors Program Lounge a group of us watched the TV coverage, I felt like I was watching disaster movie and not real life. Later in the Dean’s Office where I worked I just sat there numb and in horrified disbelief, and again witnessed more TV coverage when they brought in a small TV.  I just sat there shuffling papers, really not knowing what to do with myself and unable to focus on much. When I got home my Dad and I continued watching the coverage, it was just something I couldn’t shake myself from at that point. My Mom got home later that night and we watched President Bush address the nation.  I went to bed feeling the shock, disbelief, fear, anger, etc.  I am sure the whole nation felt that day.  Essentially, I remember feeling numb and disconnected somewhat that whole day, as if I wasn’t watching or a part of this real horrific event, it was too shocking and too unbelievable to think it was actually happening.  And now as I reflect ten years later on 9/11/11, I still recall that numbness, shock, anger, etc. like it was yesterday.  Never forget and God Bless America!!
