On September 11, ten years ago, Mike & I were in Philadelphia. Of course, everything came to a standstill. Mike was doing a tradeshow & so many of the vendors were from the NYC area. Everyone was on their cell phones trying to find out if their loved ones were okay. It was probably one of the most bazaar times I can ever remember. No one knew quite what to do.
We managed to get one of the last rental cars from the Philadelphia airport. We took the one we had back & returned it and the airport was silent. That huge airport -- & it was silent. We got in the car and drove across country passing the area where the plane went down in the field and drove & drove all day & into the morning hours with so many other people. We so needed to get home to our Allison, who was pregnant with our Sage. What a scary time!
