It’s hard to believe that sixteen years have passed since that fateful day in 2001. For as long as I live, I’ll never forget the feeling I had when I first heard the news of the planes hitting the Twin Towers. Sitting in my office at work, I turned on the radio seconds later to listen to the report of a plane hitting the Pentagon. And then I watched on television as newscasters announced a fourth plane had crashed in rural Pennsylvania.
My eyes were glued to the TV as every flight in the United States was grounded, kept up-to-date as Air Force One carrying our President made its way back to Washington, and saw the mighty towers fall. Several years later, my husband and I visited Washington, DC and the Pentagon Memorial. It was a sobering occasion for us. Now, each year on September 11, my thoughts turn to the families of those who lost their lives that day and for the men and women who are abroad helping fight the war on terrorism.
On the writing front, it’s been another busy week. I finished a project for AIW Press, and have entered the home stretch of finishing my latest novel. And I can say it’s a great feeling when I’ve completed a long term project. Of course, I’ll still need to review and make some changes before sending it to my editor, but having that first draft done is cause for celebration.
