“21 years ago today I was just settling into my office on the 49th floor of the Empire State Building, I took two sips of coffee and a bite out of my bagel and then everything changed. I witnessed events that I will never forget, our building was evacuated at 10:45am thinking we were next. I finally arrived home at 3 am. I was back in the city two days after and it was well unimaginable, besides having to witness some very sad instances that morning, it was the smell..the smell of death in the air for what seemed like months. God Bless all those who perished that awful day.”
Many of us may have the instant when September 11, 2001, Attacks occurred forever be etched in the deep crevice of our minds: I was accompanying my father-in-law in the radiology waiting room of West Suburban Hospital of Oak Park, IL when suddenly every one became glued to the only small TV monitor in that waiting room, as though the entire world collectively held its breath, totally shocked by the view of the second 110-story tower (World Trade Center’s South Tower) being hit by the United Airlines Flight 175, just seventeen minutes after the World Trade Center Complex’s North Tower in Lower Manhattan was hit by the American Airlines Flight 11 at 8:46 am. For a split second, we’ve come to realize that our America is vulnerable and Americans are not free from terror.
