Everybody has a story.....
I think it was the most unselfish moment of my life.
It was a moment that changed the way I think.
It changed the way you think too...I hope.
I was watching "The Today Show" when we got word that a plane had flown into the World Trade Center.
I, too, saw the second plane hit...live on TV. HOLY CRAP!
I went to work. We watched the footage and saw the buildings fall.
You probably did the same.
All planes were grounded. My family was stuck at in Calgary. (They were to fly home that morning)
So... That night...I (again...just like you) sat, glued, in front of the television.
I sat there, alone, feeling the lonliest I've ever felt. (There is a difference between being alone and being lonely)
I just wanted my family to be home. I was scared.
Then it dawned on me....
Thousands of people across the USA (and some in Canada) were wishing and hoping that their families would come home too....but their families were never coming home...ever again.
Then I cried.
I cried harder than I've ever cried before for someone I didn't know.
It was almost like I channelled all of their grief and worry.
11 years later...I still cry on this day....September 11th.
