Do you remember where you were on this day 10 years ago?

I do. I was driving my car to a condo association in Austin, about to do a property inspection. The news came on of the first tower being hit. It was unreal. I really couldn't even believe what I was hearing. It was so bizarre to me I didn't even really believe the news.

By the time I got back to the office, the other tower was hit and they had the news going in the conference room. I thought about if I knew anyone in NY; my cousin lives there but it seemed unlikely he would be in the trade center. I called my parents to check, he was fine.

I actually had worked at the World Trade Center once in 1994 when I was in NY for an internship.

I've been to ground zero several times and always stare in amazement at the whole in the ground. Sometimes I stand in the middle of the street and try and imagine how overwhelming it must have been to see clouds of smoke blowing through the streets.

The most horrific tragedy to happen to America. My heart goes out to all the people that lost loved ones that day.
