You will always remember where you where. What you were
doing. I was sitting in my living
room heavily pregnant indulging in my daily delight: Showbiz Today on CNN. The
show is interrupted with news about the 1st tower on fire. In the midst of
trying to digest it all, to grasp what is happening, the 2nd plane crashes into
tower. I literally cannot believe my eyes. It's like watching one of those
summer action flicks.
I mourned with the world for all the lives lost. I also mourned
for the life I was carrying. The world had changed. Color-coded terrorist
threat warnings. Religious intolerance. Wars and rumors of war. All in time for
the birth of my first child.
I watched some of the 9/11 memorials that were on television this
weekend with Miss P, the baby that was in my belly that day, including The
Flight That Fought Back. She asks could that happen to a plane we're on. “No”,
I say “that's why we go through all that crazy security”. She quietly watches a little longer before
saying “I can’t believe that really happened”. “Neither can I”, I reply.
Neither can I.
