I remember that day like it was yesterday.

My son was in second grade and I had just put him on the bus for school.

I turned on the “Today” show and during one of their segments, the news broke in with the news of the first bombing of Tower One. I was glued to the screen for the rest of the morning (and day) watching it all unfold. It was unbelievable and horrifying at the same time.

As a fan of (radio host) Howard Stern, I tuned in a little later and listened to his show for the rest of his broadcast.
It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly 20 years since it happened.

When that day rolls around every year and some channel will play some of the original footage, I make a point to tune in. I will probably do that for the rest of my life as a reminder of the horror of that day.

I for one will never forget that day, nor do I want to.
