It was a Tuesday morning, seven years ago this week.
That’s when hijacked planes barreled into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. Thousands died and a country, realizing its vulnerability to terrorists, wept.
Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 is a day many will remember exactly what they were doing when news spread of what was happening around the eastern United States as jet airliners were turned into lethal missiles before our eyes.
Eyes were glued to television sets. Tears fell.
