At the Airport on 9/11

I spent part of the sixth anniversary of 9/11 at the airport, traveling back from Phoenix.

CNN Headline News was playing all over the Sky Harbor Airport. Relentlessly, they jumped between live footage of the memorial service at Ground Zero to various reporters describing the events that unfolded on that horrible day. After a bit, I realized that the CNN Anchor was crying as she read the news. Most of the people around me were glued to the screen. I couldn't help but watch it either.

Boarding the plane was surreal ... frightening ... was I ever glad to reach my destination.
