I remember we were talking at the cabin when it happened. I still get a know in my stomach on this day, but know God is sovereign. That brings me much peace!
It did not matter WHERE in the world one was, 9/11 affected all of us. My boss had just gone off on a well-deserved holiday with his family and we were frantically trying to contact him before he boarded the plane. Delhi was on alert and I got a call from the family to come home immediately. A few years later, friends with family in New York told me how a last minute cancelled meeting saved a family member's life and I gave thanks that at least one life was saved for all the others that were lost to a global tragedy.
