This is not happening…
Five years ago today, I was sitting on my couch, listening to Steve Earl’s “Guitar Town” and teaching myself to play the tune on my 12 string Taylor guitar. Then, I got the call. I didn’t think what I was hearing could possibly be right, so I ran downstairs and flipped on the TV, only to hear Peter Jennings describe the scene as the second tower fell. And I thought again, “This is not happening…” but it was.
Through all the memorials and news stories of today, take a few moments to just sit and think and remember the exact moment you heard the news. And how sick you felt. And how scared you were. And never, ever forget that that could happen again.
