  • COLUMN: Bury the hatchet, not the issue

    The memory of 9/11 is still fresh in the minds of many, even after 10 years. But for those minds that never really understood what happened, the confusion of that day is as memorable as the tragedy itself.
    On Sept. 11, 2001, I woke up early to prepare for the day ahead. I don’t remember what I ate, what I wore or any conversations I had. I do remember it was a Tuesday and I was in the 7th grade. Tuesdays were my dad’s days to come pick me up – my favorite day of the week.

  • What were you doing when you heard the news of 9/11?

    I remember well the exact location and what I was doing when we heard the news. I was working for the railroad in Louisville. The radio was on (we did not have a TV) and all of us huddled around our radios listening and the news was streaming in. Fear, fear that it was WWIII as the reports of other airlines and catastrophes were unfolding.
