Remembering 9-11 …


9-11-01 was one of those days … everyone remembers where he or she was when first hearing the news … I was enroute from Mission Viejo to Los Angeles International Airport with Glenda Blake, as we were planning to fly to San Francisco Airport for a visit to Marin County …

… at first I thought it was an incident like the 1945 crash of an Army B-25 into the Empire State Building … an accident … likely to cause damage, but after which the building could be repaired …

… then we heard about the second plane hitting the South Tower of the World Trade Center and it became obvious that these were not accidents …
