History & 9/11

I posted this in 2007 and have been thinking how the world has changed

7:59 a.m. American Airlines Flight 11 takes off from Boston's Logan Airport and I was up drinking coffee.
8:13 a.m. The last official communication between American Airlines Flight 11 and ground controllers occurs and the transponder stops transmitting. The hijacking occurs at about this point and I was in the shower.
8:43 a.m. United Airlines Flight 175 is hijacked and I was brushing my teeth.
8:46:26 a.m. American Airlines Flight 11 out of Boston, Massachusetts, crashes into the north tower of the World Trade Center with an estimated 10,000 gallons of fuel and traveling 470 mph, I was unaware until the news broke in. I sat in my chair in disbelief.
8:50 a.m. United Airlines Flight 175 begins heading towards New York City.
9:02:54 a.m. United Airlines Flight 175 hits the south tower of the World Trade Center and explodes and I was there in my house in my comfortable chair, watching and horrified.
9:38 a.m. American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon. My God who will be next, I thought.
10:05 a.m. The south tower of the World Trade Center collapses.
10:10 a.m. A portion of the Pentagon collapses.
10:10 a.m. United Airlines Flight 93 crashes in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh.
10:28 a.m. The north tower of the World Trade Center collapses from the top down on. I cried for an hour in disbelief.

On 09 11 07, I will go to work at be at my desk at 8:46:26 ----SAFE , God willing.

Remember

When I go, let it be by boat, with a steady breeze on the Chesapeake with a bottle of 7-up, a bag of ice, a plastic cup, and a box of wine
