We were at work and the normally busy phones stopped ringing. I remember I had one guy call for a quote and I thought it was weird, but I got him one.
That night, stunned, heartsore, and frightened, we watched the news coverage replay the twin towers over and over and over. I wept.
That day, something broke inside me. Something broke inside a lot of people. Time does heal all wounds, but I still tear up when I remember that day. My voice breaks when I try to talk about it.
Never forget. Ever.
