[This is the first post I wrote for 9/11 on my other blog. It runs every year on this date.]
On Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001, I watched nearly 3,000 people die on live TV while sitting in the treatment chair at my dentist's office.
When I got home, there was a message from my friend, Lanelle. "Don't bother coming to the office. They're shutting down our building and the Galleria."
I called DH. "Get GK and come home now. It's bad."
The rest of the day we listened to fighters out of Ellington Field fly patrols over Houston. In between the passes, an eerie silence blanketed the city.
Have things gotten better? Yes and no. We heal, but we cannot forget.
