September 11, 2001: Let Us Never Forget
As I left the courthouse I saw armed U.S. Marshals surrounding the building. It was then I heard of the attack on the World Trade Center's Twin Towers. My first thoughts went to my brother who is a firefighter on Long Island. I tried to reach him on my cell phone and all lines were busy. I kept trying while I walked back to my office.
I remember leaving my office going to be with my daughter and former wife, whose husband worked for the airlines and was flying that day. He was safe. I remember speaking to my son who was in college. All of a sudden I realized how important family was. How blessed my family was and how thankful I was that God answered my prayer and let me speak to my brother while he was responding to this tragedy.
