Thinking back on what I did on 9/11 two years ago. Jill and I heard the news in the car on our long morning drive from Oakland to Menlo Park and Woodside. I remember that when Amy Goodman said "The tower has collapsed", I couldn't fathom it. I just couldn't believe it. I figured she meant some other thing by "collapsed". Because how could that happen? She must have meant "partially collapsed" or something.
I can't remember any time before or since that an event in the news made me cry.
