I was working in front of a computer-data entry type of work , no cell phones were allowed out during work and we didn't have a TV in the break room. My phone kept buzzing so I had to 'act' like I was going to the restroom. It was my husband telling me to get to a TV quick! His voice sounded like he was shivering and scared me immediately. The upper management had a tv in their break room I peeked in to see the second plane hit the building - I was gripped with fear. A flood of thoughts came in,, more people came in and an announce go was made that no one was to leave. I was in Louisville Ky about 5mins from the airport and it was said that all planes had to land immediately. The next announcement was "Pray". I did just that, dropped to my knees cried and prayed. The days after the attacks the images on TV were unforgettable.
It was as if everyone in that church understood, the world had to change, that we had to change to rise above events like 9/11 and be a more united planet.
