SHOW #56 - 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF 911

September 11, 2021

Here is SHOW #56 - "20TH ANNIVERSARY OF 911." This is one of the toughest podcast shows that I have done to date. Initially, I was very hesitant to do this show yet as I saw all the special memorials this morning in New York City (Twin Towers site), Pennsylvania, and Arlington, VA (Pentagon site) for the victims of 911, I remembered EXACTLY what I was doing when these tragic events happened on September 11, 2001! I'm sure you remember too where you were when you heard the news! In 2001, I was a Federal employee working for the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland and living in the metropolitan area of Washington, DC -- our nations Capitol with my wife and three young kids. In this podcast, I share my personal feelings on what it was like to live through this event as a young professional working for the federal government in Washington, DC! It was scary, uneasy, tense, yet a sense of PRIDE working for the government and the people of the United States. There was no doubt at that time in 2001, lots of folks of all backgrounds worked harder to get along at least at my federal job at NIH and in the community my family and l lived - Frederick, Maryland! My PRAYERS and THOUGHTS goes to all the LIVES LOST during these tragic events. In addition, this podcast is for all the younger listeners and COLLEGE STUDENTS who were too young to experience it or who were not born yet. It is time for ALL OF US to GET ALONG TOGETHER again! Peace Out!
