9/11 and Beyond

On September 11, 2001 I watched stunned as the first plane hit. I grabbed my co-workers who were already in their cubes, and we ran to the news room. Shocked, we watched on the horror unfold live on tiny screens where live TV news feeds fed into our new Bank of America “TV channel”.

You could call them co-workers, but they were friends, and they were family.

A year later I was working far away in Texas at Travelocity…
