I hit the sack a little before 11 the night of September 10, https://www.tradebit.com next day was a work day so I wanted to be up
in time to do my program,get ready,and get to the job by 9.
I was still in Iowa at the time,living off campus
in an apartment with two other cooks from the kitchen.
1 am or so Virat came in and started making a https://www.tradebit.comt woke me up.I was annoyed but fell back to sleep in a little
https://www.tradebit.comut an hour or two later I awakened https://www.tradebit.comuptly.
Gasping for breath.I didn''t know what was going on but thought maybe I was having some kind of asthma or allergy attack.I''d never had asthma but I''m a lifetime
allergy https://www.tradebit.com my first year in Iowa I was out at
work for two full weeks as a result of it.I was never so sick in my https://www.tradebit.comt had started on September 13,1994.
So maybe "history"was repeating itself?
Anyway,I fell back
https://www.tradebit.com after what seemed about a half hour I woke up
again-gasping desperately for breath.I felt as if I would
asphixiate and was gulping at the air https://www.tradebit.comre were also sharp pains in my https://www.tradebit.comt really alarmed me.
Even though I''d never had any symptoms of heart problems,
my father had died of a heart attack years https://www.tradebit.com I guess that fear has haunted me ,vaguely,for most of my https://www.tradebit.com I
was thinking about that https://www.tradebit.com the story he told me of how he''d WALKED to the hospital one day and told them "I think I''m having a heart attack".He''d https://www.tradebit.comught it would go https://www.tradebit.com didn''https://www.tradebit.com I doing the same thing now?
I fell back https://www.tradebit.com again in about a half hour the same
thing https://www.tradebit.com a semi-conscious state I woke up gasping
desperately for https://www.tradebit.com pain was still in my https://www.tradebit.combe a
little https://www.tradebit.comredibly, I just lay there. I don''t know
https://www.tradebit.combe I just didn''t want to get out of https://www.tradebit.com was dark.
And I was tired and half https://www.tradebit.combe I was hoping it would go https://www.tradebit.com maybe it was my allergies https://www.tradebit.comt''s all.I thought
maybe it''ll be all right by morning.I fell asleep again and the same thing happened two ot three more https://www.tradebit.com was https://www.tradebit.comally
daylight did https://www.tradebit.comt a relief.I had gotten maybe a half hour of https://www.tradebit.com so it seemed.
I got up and did my meditation.I felt ok .There was no
pain in my body but naturally I was wiped https://www.tradebit.com the way to work I kept wondering WHAT had happened.I wasn''t https://www.tradebit.com what WAS all that? Maybe I''d find out- figure it out later in the day? I might add at this point that every night for a good portion of my life I get pre-sentiments or https://www.tradebit.com my https://www.tradebit.com what''s going to happen the next https://www.tradebit.coms occurs on a daily basis and has for some https://www.tradebit.comn years
ago-when it didn''t seem to be happening every night it still occurred ,from time to https://www.tradebit.com for the most part as I drove to work I was thinking this has to do with my physical https://www.tradebit.com I still couldn''t figure https://www.tradebit.comway,I got to the job on time,punched the clock and said "Good morning" to Marie.
"Well it is morning-but I don''t know how good it is"
she said.I walked to the changing room to put on my uniform
and wondered what was https://www.tradebit.com had a disturbed look on her https://www.tradebit.comn I came back out I looked around the cook''s aisle and when I saw her walked over to ask her what I was supposed to be doing that morning on the job. But first I figured I''d ask her-"You all right Marie?"
She looked at me and said"Yeah I''m ok- but didn''t you hear
the news?""No,what happened?" I thought maybe somebody got fired."Terrorists crashed a plane into the World Trade Center this https://www.tradebit.com''s on fire and they don''t know if it
will stay up" "WHAT?" What did you just say?" I said incredulous and https://www.tradebit.com repeated what she had just said:"Terrorists crashed a plane into the World Trade Center,it''s on fire and it might fall down"A few minutes later I think, we got the news that one of the towers had collapsed Now I was really in shock,as I tried to take it in.I felt defeated and very sad.I had been hoping they wouldn''t fall https://www.tradebit.com the whole kitchen was in https://www.tradebit.comrybody was running around,calling home and generally https://www.tradebit.com I did like everybody https://www.tradebit.comer a little while,I guess I started to work and as I walked toward the soup urn thinking about what I had just been told it began to dawn on me what the whole previous night had been https://www.tradebit.comn though I was a thousand miles from home,literally a thousand miles away,somehow my heart was still back there,connected to that place,those events and those https://www.tradebit.com somehow it seemed to me,I was being told about it.A little bit in https://www.tradebit.com that pain in my https://www.tradebit.com those people crying out for help. Me gasping for breath,all those people breathing their https://www.tradebit.comt''s what the whole previuos night had been https://www.tradebit.comse were the feelings I''d picked up https://www.tradebit.com that mysterious way I was connected to it https://www.tradebit.com we were all connected to https://www.tradebit.com what did it really mean for all of us? Maybe I''d been given some kind of sneak https://www.tradebit.com whatever https://www.tradebit.com I really didn''t know at the moment what it https://www.tradebit.com seemed about then that Shannon,the baker''s assistant came running into the cook''s aisle area shouting"the president''s declared war!"That annoyed me and alarmed me."The president can''t declare war" I https://www.tradebit.com I guess that''s when we learned about the https://www.tradebit.comre was no tv in the kitchen,thank God, but the bakery had a radio so that''s where all our news was coming from.I went in there and listened for a few https://www.tradebit.com to no https://www.tradebit.comke with https://www.tradebit.comdless to say everybody was in deep shock by https://www.tradebit.com we had to get the lunch https://www.tradebit.com we https://www.tradebit.com https://www.tradebit.comre wasn''t much conversation at our table during https://www.tradebit.com just didn''t feel like talking https://www.tradebit.comhough the dining hall didn''t seem overly subdued it was quieter then https://www.tradebit.comer lunch,we cooked the supper as https://www.tradebit.com all I could think about was what had happened that morning.I just wanted,like everybody else, to get the job done and get home.
When I got back to the house Suresh was there and the tv was https://www.tradebit.comce he''d done the breakfast he''d left early,right after https://www.tradebit.comre was a grave look on his https://www.tradebit.com was then that I first saw those https://www.tradebit.com say that we looked on in horror is putting it https://www.tradebit.comre are instances in "the course of human events "when words https://www.tradebit.coms was one of those https://www.tradebit.com watched for about an hour trying to get some https://www.tradebit.com mostly they just seemed to play it over and over https://www.tradebit.comally we turned it off disguted and sick at https://www.tradebit.com this time it was late afternoon and time to do https://www.tradebit.comt''s what I did and afterwards we ate supper and watched the https://www.tradebit.com next day was a work day.I fell asleep uncertain and mournful as we all did.
I was a New York kind of guy and the Trade Center meant something to https://www.tradebit.comrs ago I had worked in a cafe on the east side of Manhattan and we had delivered food down there several times.I''d been in those buildings on those occasions and any number
of other times.I''d been to the observatory on the top floor.I knew that when the elevators reached the lobby
they made a chiming bell like https://www.tradebit.comusands and thousands of people worked https://www.tradebit.com the offices were
surprisingly https://www.tradebit.com the elevators were incredibly fast.
They were immense structures but weren''t massive and imposing in the way the Empire State Building https://www.tradebit.com I really didn''t even care for the design- too dull for me and the fact that there were two of them.I wasn''t particularly a fan of that https://www.tradebit.comll,I knew what it was like underneath the Trade
https://www.tradebit.com the shops,restaurants,thousands and thousands
of people coming up from and going down to the PATH trains.
On those oh-so- very long https://www.tradebit.com was,another one of
those cities within the Big City that I loved so https://www.tradebit.comre had been concerts at night there.A flamenco group from Spain who were one of the greatest groups I''d ever seen https://www.tradebit.com a Balinese gamelan group who had a spectacular performance with torches and a giant dragon
costume-similar to the kind you see on Chinese New Year.
It was a great setting facing New York harbor in that https://www.tradebit.com then there was the subway station at Chambers https://www.tradebit.comt''s where you got off if you were taking the A,the AA or the CC https://www.tradebit.com that''s where I got off with
my sweetheart and kissed her goodbye before she left to take the PATH train to Jersey.I was in college then and
living in https://www.tradebit.cometimes we''d go to the https://www.tradebit.com even though it was way over on the west side of Manhattan we could see the scafffolding for the new World Trade Center,the tallest building in the https://www.tradebit.com that was a
memory https://www.tradebit.com that was gone.
