Every one of us knows exactly where we were on this day 10 years ago. There is a different story for every one of us and a different way it touched us all. This is my story and in what parts of my life it touched me . . .
I was driving to work when the radio announced the impact of the first plane on the World Trade Center. It was only speculation as to whether it was a terrorist attack at that point. That speculation ended approximately 5 minutes after I got to work and we watched as a second plane impacted the other tower on the television in our lobby. I was a mechanic at a shop in downtown Raleigh, NC that specialized in Cadillac. We didn’t get much work done that day. We watched and waited. We saw the Pentagon get hit. We heard about United Airlines flight 93 going down in Shanksville, PA. Read the rest . . .
