The reports on the attacks have become more personal now. I listed to NPR on my way back from lunch today, and heard a tape of a woman telling about her brother. He was on the 99th floor of the second tower of the WTC, headed downstairs to evacuate, when the second plane hit. He had to go up to the 105th floor, where he got stuck. He talked to his sisters and brother on his phone, the last call when he suspected he was not going to get out alive. He asked his brother to take care of his children.

I had to fight back tears so I could arrive back at work looking normal.
