I will never forget what I was doing when I heard the news on September 11, 2001. I lived in Ohio and worked in Pennsylvania at that time, so I was at work. I was in supervision for my job as a family therapist and did not hear the news until we left supervision at almost noon. My co-workers then tried to share what had happened, but living in Pennsylvania, they were most concerned about the plane that had gone down in PA. I had no idea of the gravity of the situation until I got in the car to head to lunch. Of course, that is all that was on the radio, so I got to hear the seriousness and the closings of businesses and schools all around us. I was bawling before I ever left the parking lot, so I turned right back in, went inside, and told my supervisor I was taking the rest of the day off. Within a few minutes, they had closed our office building for the day as well. I went home, called my family. made sure everyone was fine, and watched the news. I was expecting our first child at that point and I remember wondering what kind of world she would be entering. I will never forget.
What were you doing on that day?
