Story:I was in jail, watching the TV, when the show that we were watching was interrupted and the news came on and said that one of the towers had been hit. At first, everyone thought that it might have been a terrible accident. But, when they came on and said that the Pentagon had been hit, there was no question about it. As soon as the Pentagon story came on I had to make a phone call, as one of my old Navy buddys was stationed there. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get through for about 12 hours, and when I did, it wasn't good news. He had been one of the many casualties of the strike on the U.S. I still pray that the people that sponsored this will be brought to justice, and be made to pay for these attrocities.
Response:Unfortunately, being in jail there wasn't much that I could do except to make a small donation to the relief effort.
Affects:It has made me work harder at being a volunteer.
Red Cross Volunteer:yes
