My reflection on that horrible day six years ago.
September 11, 2007:
I'll never forget that day.
Listening to Mark Hanes on CNBC cover the story in disbelief as the second tower started to smoke and we thought it was bombs inside...
Watching the people jump out of the WTC as it burned down...
Wondering if Lakshman was OK...he was there for a meeting.....
Then learning planes flew into the towers, not bombs. Terrorists piloting bombs with wings.
Then learning the Pentagon was hit by a plane
Then learning a plane went down in a field in Pennsylvania. Such brave people to bring their plane down before the hijackers could finish their deadly mission.
Then seeing the towers collapse..
One of the few times in my life I remember crying as events unfolded....
Is that how my grandparents remembered Pearl Harbor?
I recorded my thoughts as we all watched in horror here.
