I had no idea what was going on until I talked to my mom on the phone and she had such concern in her voice and said, "Don't you know whats happening in NYC?"..I said, "No" and she said, "Turn on the tv, Mel".
I couldnt believe what I was seeing, and what was happening to our country. The severity of it didn't really hit me until a few days later and it became very real to me. Our country.."my" country..had been attacked.
I will never forget.
