I listen to talk radio stations to get around Long Island. On 9/11, while on Sunrise Highway I heard about the plane.
Got to the office and turned the tv, saw the 1st message. My girlfriend was in the Financial Building next door, tried to reach her, but the cell phones were down. It took several hours and then she was able to get a train. It was a very traumatic experience for her. I also worked for a youth organization on Long Island, which was affected by volunteerism and donations. It has not the best of times. But with support, we will get through.
