I Remember

Like so many other people, I remember exactly what I was doing eight years ago today. I was holding a six month old Master J, watching in horror as the chaos unfolded on my television set. And even 2,000 miles from ground zero, we felt the aftershocks of that event. Mister C worked for a company that is based on the stock market and within two weeks, he got laid off from that job because Wall St was still shut down. But my experience is a drop in the ocean of pain that people closer to the event felt. If it was acceptable to partake of alcohol at 7:00 am, I'd raise my glass to the Northeast and give a hearty "Salute!" to all of those that made it through that awful day. And all of those that didn't.
