I think this day is a day of personal memories and feelings as well as the public remembrance of the terrible act that was committed against our country and humanity in general.
Shortly after the attack, Cathy called, we talked about the events.
Later Brenda called, we talked about the events. Maybe I was the one who called to check on her, I can't remember now.
Later Cathy called, "I talked to Brenda but I can't get a hold of Bean have you talked to her?"
Later Brenda called, "have you talked to Cathy and Bean?"
I called Cathy, "have you talked to Bean yet?"
I called Brenda, "I talked to Cathy have you heard from Bean? "
This went on all day.
It felt good to be there with each other.
This happens with us, we need to be together.
Amanda(Bean) and her husband Gregg were living in Baltimore and Gregg was interning at Johns Hopkins Hospital. We decided they were in some awful situation. The hours ticked by, what could have happened to them? Why hadn't any of us heard from them.
Then 3:00 the phone rings -"Hi, Ma, it's Bean, I'm O.K.
She had started a brand new job and none of us could remember the name of the company or I'm sure we would have called and checked on her. Gregg was working in the burn unit and was doctoring many of the victims of the attack.
You remember these things......your own special remembrances. Diane
