"I sat and watched the TV. I
couldn't believe what I was watching. I began to pray to God to help those
inside. My husband, Bob, a Police Officer for the Port Authority Police,
who seldom receive the recognition they honestly deserve for their hard
work, courage and strength, kissed me good by and left for the Towers.
In just moments, but what seemed like a lifetime, the towers fell. I
sat and cried. My heart felt like the towers...crashing.
My kids, I had to get them from school. What would they be thinking?
What would they be doing?
So I brought them home and explained to them what was happening. We all
prayed that God would bring daddy back home to us safely, even though the
events being as they were left some doubt in my mind as to whether we
would ever see him and many of our friends ever again."
