It was a beautiful sunrise. I was driving home from a long nightshift in bumper to bumper Chicago traffic. I heard 9/11 unfold on my favorite morning radio show Eric & Kathy on 101.9 The MIX. I remember their confusion evolve into horror, anger, and sadness. It transmitted to me over the airwaves through their quivering voices and burned graphic images on my brain. I arrived home and woke my wife to tell her the “world had changed”. We turned on the TV and watched the aftermath and reruns with tears in our eyes, shock in our minds, pain in our hearts, and gut wrenching fear for the future in our bellies. The Darkness is not forgotten, but it has given way to The Light.
Where were you at this moment on 9/11/01?
