this day will never be forgotten by myself or many many people. My wife and I will be in Newyork on the 21st for the very first time and we will be visiting the memorial site. I am sure it will be emotional as I still remember that day as if it was yesterday.

I’m originally from upstate New York and at one time much of my extended family lived in and around the New York City area. My cousin worked in the World Trade Center, another for MTV just down the street. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing. I had been hired to install and setup a sound system in a Hilton Hotel by a friend of my fathers, I was roughly 20 at the time. The hotel hired a team for me to install the gear and I ran the install and did all the tuning and final connections. They had staples the speaker wires such that they were shorting out and I was in the process of tracing out which lines were bad and needed replacement. I was in the ceiling of the hotel when he first plane crashed into the tower. I remember that nobody knew what was happening so when the reports came in, they thought it was a tragic accident. The hotel owner came to tell me what happened and said I should keep working but he would update me. When the second plane crashed he came to get me and told me it wasn’t an accident, it was an attack, and he would be driving me to my fathers office.

I remember all of the details of what happened around the attack, but interestingly, none of the details from before or after.

I was working at a university at the time and classes were canceled as a number of students that go there are from the US so we ended up bringing the largest TV we had on campus down to a common area and hooked it up to cable and tuned in CNN. By the time news reports were stating it was an atack many factuality and students were huddled in groups praying and in tears. It was and still is surreal

I'm sure I will still tear up when I'm at the actual site of the towers.

So I was in New York over the last weekend and did the full tour of the 9/11 museum and I must say they did a wonderful job, the detail is second to none and moving The 3.5hrs I spent there was never boring.
