My wife was suffering mental illness when this happened. When interviewing about delaying my training to fix it I heard about the plane hitting world trade ctr. I first thought was a private plane, agreed by superior cause we couldn't believe anything larger. When I told class after everything they were of same opinion. But hours to get on base in days afterwards proved otherwise.
Soon both towers came down. We realized that terrorism was now not just what we see on the evening news. The sadness of loss of life increased 10 fold, then disbelief, confusion, anger, and fear.
