One of my boss's (the dad) worked at the Federal Center in Denver, CO. He had been scheduled to fly out that morning (needless to say, his plans were canceled).
The only thing I remember hearing on the radio is that an airplane crashed into a building. I didnt find out the full extent of what was happening until I got to work and started watching the news. Then the tragedy slowly unfolded. Hubby (we were just dating then) was at home sleeping. I called him, had to wake him up and made him turn on the news.
After that day, he decided to join the Military.
He told me he wanted to join the Marines and that he could only do it if I was going to be by his side. With absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into, I agreed. 3 months later, he left for Boot Camp.
I never would have thought, that in my life, such a horrific event like this would occur. An event that affected so many and that 10 years later, people still ask the question, "Where were you when it happened? What do you remember?" A date in history that would become iconic.
