I happened to glance at the clock and from nowhere, realized that seven years ago I had just watched the second Twin Tower fall. For over ten minutes now, I’ve been sitting in silence at my desk, remembering.

I had no idea that 10:29 a.m. – the exact time I watched the second Tower fall – was imprinted on my heart. I’m generally not much of a Prayer Person, but every September 11th, for a few minutes, I am.

    I’m a Deist, but when the worst happens or threatens to happen, I immediately start praying to the Greater Power. It’s natural and not a bad thing at all. We should all remember to do this or some sort of reflection more often.

    Do you remember coming out of class and all the second and third years in the commons shushing us because we had no idea what was going on?

    Don was on wireless duirng crim law and told me the Pentagon had been attacked as we left. So I knew before I even got in the commons something was wrong.

    It wasn’t crim law–that got cancelled, it was in the afternoon. Must have been Contracts–I spent many aday playing on the intrawebs in there.

    I had no idea until we got down there, and people were panicked.
