I was working from home writing reports, I didn’t have any media on and was unaware of the situation. My wife called from work, a school. She thought I should think about picking them up. When I turned on the TV both buildings were still up with only the first one hit. It was burning bad and shortly after I started watching what happened the second plane hit. I knew as everyone did at that moment that it was an attack. I went straight to the school and took my daughter out of school. I was only 5 blocks away from the school but there really was no way to know what was happening. I could only envision terrorist shooting up the schools like they did in Russia. The office lady was indignant that I was taking her out of school and told me that the kids don’t even know it happened, like that was going to keep them safe. That day was an awakening for me.
