Re: Garden Club - September 2019

Sounds like everyone who has reported thus far got some shut eye. That's good news.

 

I hit snooze twice this AM, and still didn't want to get up. Just plain greed, I slept fine.

 

Usually, I hit it once at most.

Yikes. The other day at softball, a guy fouled off a ball and it landed square on the back windshield of a car parallel parked there. Thing shattered instantly. It was like it was made of stunt glass. 

 

It's been really hard to get up the past week or so. I think there is something that has upped my allergies in the air. At least I can try and fight that with zyrtec and copious amounts of coffee.

May we take a brief Moment of silence for all those who lost and gave their Lives in the line of Duty!

 

Of the 2,977 victims killed in the September 11 attacks, 412 were emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center. This included:

18 years ago? Wow. I remember it vividly. My stepdad woke me up that morning when the first plane hit. I was late to the start of the school year and so I didn't start until the Friday after it happened. A very sad day in American history. Thank you for sharing @M_Smart007.

Smiley Sad


I worked on the eastern end of Wall Street for Citigroup and had just talked to my co-worker (a VP who was in charge of her department) about how great it felt to get into the office early when the first plane hit. We didn't have any radios, so we got what information we could and were told to stay in place. As the dust came across town (The World Trade Center was on the west part of downtown and it's about 3/4 of a mile or so from where I worked) and filled up the vents, we were told to walk down the stairs and out to the street. We walked down 22 flights of stairs and saw people trying to get anywhere. All I could do was walk from Wall Street to Grand Central Terminal (a little less than 4 miles), stopping several times to get something to drink and eat. The suburban trains (Metro-North) were running, so I rode it to the stop closest to my home at the time in the Bronx. I walked past the local firehouse and saw trucks from nearly every northern suburb lined up on the street. I got home and was simply in shock.

 

My work was relocated to Stamford, CT for a few days and I remember writing to my manager that the terrorists were trying to scare us, but all they did was (tick) me off. We went back to Wall Street a few days later to see armed National Guard troops in front of the building and limited lighting. I was coughing every day after I left the office, so I got a soda, a habit I still hold to this day.

 

I came to find out that another co-worker's wife worked at Cantor Fitzgerald in the twin towers. She always loved coming to work early, but that day she overslept and got downtown right as the first plane hit. She would have been dead had she followed her usual routine.

 

The office I now work at is across the street from Ground Zero, so no one will be in today. I normally work from home four days a week, but it's difficult to go past there and think about what happened.

 

I apologize for the length of this post, but I felt the need to tell my story. 


Thank you for telling your story. And there was no need to apologize. I'm glad that your co-workers wife overslept that morning.

Incredible story. My buddy who is a NYC Detective was a uniformed cop during 9-11 and present at ground zero. He doesn’t talk about it much other than recognizing the anniversary every year.
