PLEASE REMEMBER 9/11
Today is Sept. 11, and we can all remember where we were seven years ago when the unthinkable occurred.
As a journalist, I was right here in the newsroom, watching in horror as the fate of the second plane was presented live on CNN, so soon after the first tragedy. And soon the other horrors evolved.
I don't need to add to what everyone is saying and thinking today, but please take time out to remember those who lost their lives that day, those who risked their lives to try to save others, those who had to persevere after losing loved ones in this tragedy.
And remember how the country rallied so valiantly in the days, weeks and months after the attack.
Count your blessings, offer thanks, offer prayers -- and hold your family tightly to you.
