September 11, 2001 started out like any other work day for me. I loaded up my laptop and grabbed my motorcycle gear, then turned on the tv to check the traffic report.

I saw a 747 crash into a skyscraper. I thought, just for a split second, that this was some movie trailer. Then, it hit me, this was my local news. Even then, I could not grasp what was really going on. At that point, nobody knew.

I thought "Geez, that's a tradgedy". I wondered how an accident of this scale could possibly happen. I popped on my helmet and proceeded to commute to my job in San Francisco.

I got up to the 15th floor, and found the office completely deserted. I didn't know a another plane had crashed into the second tower until I called my boss.

I went numb when I realized that thousands of innocent people had been murdered that morning. They woke up, very much like I had, grabbed their stuff in a mad dash while choking down a piece of toast, and rushed off to work.
