    I'm not sure I could ever forget the footage I watched on the television that morning or how helpless I felt while watching it ... These images are forever burned into my memory bank and the feelings I doubt will ever go completely away (not that I would want them to) ... May they all rest in peace, hopefully in a better place ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Jerbear, thanks for that video link. I was flying out of Sacramento to Detroit on the morning of 9/11. Ended up in Las Vegas and took me 3 days to get home. I'll never forget the chaos at the L.V. airport. Authorities were trying to evacuate people and close it. Passenger jets from many countries circling and trying to get down. It was pretty comforting to see a pair of F14's or F16's (?) out of Nellis Air Base flying over the airport/city. I'll never forget the voice message left on my cell phone by my 16yo daughter...something to the effect of "you better call me now" in her scared voice! Times like that sure make you appreciate your loved ones.

    For a number of years, it wasn't unusual for me to jump on the train and do business in lower or mid-town Manhattan. On that day, I'd been invited to attend an industry conference in the Towers, something I did frequently. I almost went as a guy from another company I was working with on a piece of business was one of the panel speakers. Not sure what the conflict was, but I decided not to go. Unfortunately about 120 people, many of whom I knew, did go and were on one of the top floors of the first building hit, all were lost. And it didn't happen quickly. Many were able to call their family, saying things didn't look good, that they loved them, and then saying good-bye. Due to a comical fluke of fate, the guy I was working with had to go back down to his hotel room & was there when the plane hit & he made it out ok.

    My company was lucky (in a sad way) as we did a lot of business in the Towers, and all of our employees except 3 made it out safely. My cell phone was crazy for a couple of hours that morning as family, friends and colleagues knew that I'd go there on little or no notice & all wanted to know where I was.

    Really bizarre thing? About 3 weeks later I was going through my mail and saw there was an invitation to attend another conference. When I turned it over to look at the front page, I was stunned. Taking up half the page was a picture of the NY skyline, with the Towers, saying the conference would be held there. I couldn't believe that no one pulled those flyers before sending.

    I still have that invitation, as I never want to forget what happened on 9/11.

    It was months before I could bring myself to go back to Manhattan. On the other hand I was in London for 3 or 4 days about 2 weeks after 9/11. Every time I got in a cab and gave the address, the driver would look at me, say "Are you a Yank?" and when I said yes, they'd immediately talk my ear off, saying what a terrible thing it was, how much they hated those who'd done it -- obviously affected them emotionally very hard -- were absolutely supportive of America.

    Days like that, hard not to remember what you did minute by minute.

    Pete
