My Facebook feed is filled with posts detailing where folks were on that fateful day. I was unhappily living in the Twin Cities and contemplating a way out of there. I recall feeling discouraged by life in general and just trying to get through each day as I juggled 2 jobs and night school.
But, by September 12, 2001, my entire outlook on life completely changed. No longer did it seem prudent to waste anymore time in an unhappy situation. For days, I stayed glued to my television waiting to see whether they found anymore survivors.
So many lives needlessly lost and world that remained changed forever.
