We all remember where we were on 09/11. When we heard the news and how we dealt with it. I remember driving home from work that night and it seemed everyone was outside, every family, every parent playing with their children in their yards. That went on for about a week. Everyone outside, every night.
In my flower shop around 5:00 – 6:00 I had a steady stream of gentlemen stopping in to buy a dozen red roses. Men waiting patiently while I boxed and wrapped a dozen roses for the guy in front of him. Every night. This went on for three weeks.
