LC Story: Story

I was in my office on 51 Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City. I was looking at emails and some yelled from across the room that a plane hit one of the Twin Towers.

LC Story: Memory

The strongest memory was watching the buildings come down. The horror of knowing that my cousin, Donald T. Jones, II of Cantor Fitzgerald was more than likely dead.

LC Story: Affects

I think it has effected everyone in regards to personal safety. Realizing that terror attacks can strike at anytime, has made more aware of our surroundings. Things like "The Go-Bag" would never have been necessary to make if we weren't attacked. To attack innocent people is the most cowardly act anyone can make. But on a positive thought, it has given Americans a new sence of PRIDE in our country and a strength to see us through the difficult times ahead.
