At work already.
I was thinking about the day.
I was unaware.
It was about 8am (central time). I'd been at work for 1 hour and 15 minutes
A gentleman who was on our board of directors asked me if I had a radio. It didn't matter what station, I just needed to turn it on.
I did. Just in time to hear the words, "The second tower has been hit, both of the world trade center towers have been hit."
It was surreal.
I don't think I really grasped it. There was so much confusion. People didn't know what was going on. Was it real? Was it a terrorist attack? What was going on?
I wasn't until I heard that the Pentagon... the place I always thought was impenetrable... was hit too.
That's when I got scared.
It was the hardest day I've ever had to suffer through work.
