I was up all night working on my folio, I had been out of work for over a year because I was still living off of the Royalties I had earned my my first five years in video games. I had the TV on Good Morning America, when Katy interrupted her own story to report that one of the buildings at the World Trade Center was on fire.
I thought it was interesting news, So I called my Girlfriend now Wife. As we watched together the second plane hit. it was quite dramatic. by this time I do not think that there was one person in this country that wasn’t aware.
When ALL the buildings collapsed I felt the meaning behind what Obi Wan Kenobi said in Star Wars ” I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. ”
I wanted so desperately to have been there to help evacuate those people but then another quote from old Ben reminded me “There was nothing you could have done, Luke, had you been there. You’d have been killed too”
I haven’t forgotten 911 or Pearl Harbor & let’s not forget the Alamo. God Bless.
