Do you remember where you were? Many of us of our generation know exactly where we were.
I had just come back from the ANG seminar which was held in Washington D.C. that year. Yes you read that correctly. I left on 9.10 and got home very late that night. Tuesday morning was a very early morning for us to be at work as that was my restaurant days and we would do inventory every Tuesday morning.
I wanted a quiet morning, no,TVs, no radio and drove to work, so I could soak in all my memories from seminar. So I didn’t have a clue what happened until I got to work and walked into the office. Being from NY and just leaving Washington D.C. kind of hit me hard.
Many of our seminar goers were going to vacation a bit in Washington D.C., but that didn’t happen. Many were stranded there, but at least they were safe.
As through the pandemic we’ve been stitching a lot, I knew that I stitched a lot then too. I’ve been watching and listening to all the tributes and remembrances today. And tonight is the Mets Yankees game.
