I was working with my horses when my son called me to tell me about the first tower being hit. I immediately recalled stories of H.G. Wells "War of the Worlds," thinking this can't be real, it must be a hoax. I hurried home to discover it was real, and I watched the rest of the event unfold on television. I'm a police officer, so I don't have to tell you how it broke my heart to see all those innocent people lose their lives, including my brothers in blue, along with the firefighters, and EMS personnel.
