September 11th

I remember very vividly what I was doing on September 11th, 2001. I was sitting at my desk in my office in Clinton Hall at Wichita State University. At the time, I was Associate Dean. A young man who worked in the Dean's Office, stuck his head into my office and said "Something has happened, a plane has crashed in New York and they are showing it on TV." I went to one of the large lecture halls close to my office. The class was sitting there in silence watching the television. There was an air of stunned disbelief. No one was really saying anything, just watching.

There are times in our lives that "stick" in our memory. I will always remember what I was doing when the planes flew into the World Trade Center.
