LC Story: Story

I was in the Main Office at Nanuet Senior High School. A secretary received a telephone call informing her that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I turned to another teacher and tolde her that I was afraid it was not an accident. she agreed. I went to my office and learned via the Internet that the second tower was hit. I knew it was terrorism. As I made my way to the Media Center I remember the fear in the students faces and voices. One student asked me if it would cause an economic depression. I assured him it would not. I did not realize the impact it would have on the economy.

LC Story: Memory

Eatching the towers collapse and sharing fears that someone's husband, wife, child, or friend was in one of the them.

At the end of the day, as the immediate shock wore off, I began to realize that I must know many of the thousands who were killed that morning.

I prayed the 'Our Father' and asked God to 'deliver us from the Evil One, especially Bin Laden.'

LC Story: Affects

The myth of American invincibility has been destroyed. The oceans are no longer a buffer.

I'm always a little more relaxed when my returns home from her job in New York City.
