The morning of September Eleventh, I was scheduled to be on a military base doing some computer consulting work. There was a problem with a power transformer, though, so I was sent back to the office about the time that the first plane hit.

When I heard that a plane had run into the World Trade Center, I laughed, thinking it was a Cessna or something. Then a second plane hit, then rumors about a "bomb at the Pentagon." I watched in disbelief as the towers fell, thinking we must have been watching special effects or something. It made me, former Airborne Infantry, cry in front of my peers.

You need to understand exactly how much I hate New York -- been there twice and never want to go back. Don't like the (typical) New Yorkers who have moved to the South, etc. It didn't matter on September 11th though -- I, like the rest of the country, was a New Yorker that day.

It's odd how it affected me. I knew no-one who died. I'd never been to the towers. I can't stand the city. But it was all my wife could to to keep me from re-enlisting and volunteering for OCS, knowing how rare good Infantry officers are.

I'm still emotional about it. I hate the way our country has responded, and the power-grabs we've been seeing in the last year. I hate the rubber-stamp patriotism that I see everywhere, but I guess my definition of "patriotism" is different than that of the typical SUV owner who feels compelled to put a sticker on his/her car.

I guess all I do know is that I'm not the same as I was a year and a day ago. I don't think I ever will be.

I had just stumbled out of bed and turned on the TV. I saw what I thought was a smoke stack from a factory pouring out black smoke into the atmoshpere. When I changed the channel, I saw the same image- and the the same on the next channel. I realized something was wrong. Minutes later the second plane crashed into the tower. I didn't know what to think. I haven't experienced the trama many people have in this. I pray that America turns to God for answers.

On September 11,2001 I was home with the t.v. on geting ready for work. Then one of the news casters voice caught my attention. So I stoped what I was doing and sat down looked at the news. What I saw I couldn't belive my eyes, it was like my heart skiped a couple of beats my mouth droped open. I didn't understand why a plan would just slam into a building killing thousands and thousands of people. At the time they not were saying an act of terrisom until another plan went into the pentogon. My eyes were full of water my heart very heavy so I began to pray. Today my heart is still heavy it doesn't seem like it has been an entire year since this happened.
