When it was known who was responsible, I could only wonder how
the US would respond, since it wasn't a country but an organization
that would be harder to deal with. Someone showed one of the e-mails
with an Islamic customers name on it, and said something catty about
it, but I said to her that it wasn't the Islamic culture that attacked, just
some radical terrorists. She digressed. Another co-worker has an
uncle who was the regular pilot for one of the flights, but arranged to
take that day off for a relative's wedding.
I was working at my former business a small convience store in Central
Florida. I had heard about the atacks from my grandmother who came in a
few minutes after the first plane hit. Most all day I was glued to a 4
inch black and white TV that barely was picking up the local channels.
Business was off by 50% that day and the people who did come in where
mostly angry or numb. I fell into the numb category.
The one time I remember get the most emotional was when I heard a lady
on TV say with so much emotion in her voice, "I just talked to my
husband who worked on the (some high number) floor in the Trade Center.
He's alive" The anguish, relief and raw joy of her voice really brought
home the personal side of this. Maybe it was just building all day but
that was the first time I remember losng it.
