We'll never forget...we'll always remember that day. The glorious day in September when we we heard the news for the first time!
Ironically, I was watching the news, at home. I was off for a few days, arriving home just the day before from a trip to Silver Springs, Maryland where I was visiting my family. It was only 24 hours prior I was on an Amtrack train pulling into Penn Station on September 10th and I recall, like it was yesterday, looking at the Manhattan skyline like it was through the eyes of a child.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, I had the Today Show on while I was walking around my home, and in an instant they broke to a fire caused from the first plane that crashed into the Tower at The World Trade Center.
Wondering what was going on, I called my friend, Krista, who was doing news at the time for LITE and asked if she knew of what was going on. Just then, while we were talking, I saw, live on television, the second plane hit the second tower at World Trade. In amazement and panic, we both decided it would be best that I head to Tucker Drive and do.....something. Not knowing the severity of what was happening at that exact moment, I fled Millbrook to Poughkeepsie and spent the next four days / nights like everyone in the country, broadcasting what would be one of the most tragic events in US History.
I thank God, everyday, for what I have and reflect back on that day, pray for the families and our country. September 11, 2001 - Never Forget.
