Nine years ago my mom and I were awfully late. We had been in Washington the night before and were home late. We had an interview in the morning in New Jersey and to go there from Connecticut, were we were living in the house of a cousin, we needed to be early in the morning at the train station under the twin towers to take our train.
But we were an hour late. And as we drove to the train station in a taxi, we learned that our need for some more sleep had saved our lives. We went back home and watched TV the whole day. Heard from neighbors of our cousin, who worked in the towers and who didn't make it home. We were stuck in the US and couldn't take our flight the next day, so we wandered around and saw a country in shock and grief.
That day changed so many things in the worst possible way and I will be forever thankful for being so late and surviving it.
