I was just waking up (west coast) and saw I believe the second jet go into one of the WTC buildings... I couldn't believe what I was seeing. |
And eight days later my womens B team was in Lubbock, TX for USSSA Womens B World. Not knowing for days if planes were going to fly again, and with all the crazy trying to get down there and actually play, we won worlds.
It was great to play and be distracted from the tragedy for a moment but still very sobering knowing all the innocent lives lost.
I remember planes being empty... connecting flights cancelled... LE and dogs on the departure deck at airport with mirror on the end of a long pole checking for explosives and such underneath the vehicles.
It was crazy, sad and heartbreaking.
