One of the saddest days in American history.
Being from the NY metro area, it was an especially raw event. Fortunately, we did not lose any direct family members or friends on that day. We know lot of people who did lose a loved one.
Around this time 10 years ago, Mr. Blondie was driving into Manhattan to his graphic design. He saw smoke billowing on the horizon, but didn't know what it was yet. Soon he would learn the extreme magnitude of what was happening.
I was finishing up a college internship, and was sitting in a Philadelphia office building watching the events unfold on TV with my co-workers.
As a physician, my dad headed to Jersey City with a triage unit to assist with flow of victims they expected to treat. They stood there waiting. There were no survivors to transport there.
What were you doing that day?
So much had changed in the past 10 years, but the day is still crystal clear in our memories. We will never forget.
