Where were you 13 years ago on this day?
Donna Zeigfinger, founder of Green Earth Travel, was making an airline reservation for a new client. 30 minutes later, she cancelled. Donna also had a client, Lisa, stuck in Canada. She had to take a bus home. Donna worried about one client thinking he was flying that day. Luckily, he was not.
Living up north, Donna also worried about her personal friends and family. She contacted her loved ones while they were contacting her. In the midst of all the chaos, she had a tough time balancing her worries that day.
As for me, my mother checked my siblings and myself out of school because my brother was coughing blood. The TV in the main office had the news on. We all watched the second plane hit the tower live. I watched some awful things that day. With no family or friend ties up north, I still felt more sadness and fear than I ever had before. I was only 11.
Where were you? What were you doing? #Worldtradecenter #September112001
