I remember it well… I was discussing with my co-worker a National Geographic article about Caspian Sea sturgeon and that the fish at it’s maturity grows up to 6′ long and can produce enough caviar to sell in the free market at a value of $1,000,000.00. We were joking about ability to keep one or two in captivity to keep producing that much caviar.
In the background was the NPR radio station announcing that a plane struck one of the twin towers. My first reaction was that it was a small plane and a mishap. While that sounded odd, I didn’t think much past that, until 20 minutes later when they announced it was a jetliner. Shortly after that the second plane hit and that was when it was determined that the US was under attack.
A day that changed the world. Where were you?
