Writer's Block: 9/11

Where were you?
I was in my office in London working for an American company and my husband who was on a day off phoned me and told me to get Sky News on the Internet right away, terrible things were happening in America.

I and my colleagues in human resources crowded around my computer watching the horrors unfold and listening to gasps around the office from other cubicles.  Several people were in tears.

I had taken a long weekend trip to New York three months before 9/11 and went up the WTC.  I felt numb and couldn't stop thinking of the people we'd seen there especially the lovely lady on the cash register in the cafeteria there who had a giggle with me when I couldn't find the milk.

I have no idea if that sweet lady lived or died.
