The Day to Remember

Hope you are taking time to reflect and remember those lost this day, 13 years ago, with the terror attacks in New York, Washington DC, and in Pennsylvania.  I think of that day often and where I happened to be when the first plane hit the trade center…and then the second.  I was right here, at KNCO, doing the morning news with George Rath and realized right away that this was not an accident.  Also, September 11, 1988, right here in Nevada County, was the start of the 49er Fire, the most devasting wildfire in our area.  Personally, three years ago, September 11, 2001 was the last time I hugged my Mom and saw her in person as she was dying of cancer..and I had to head home.  Yes…this is an emotional day for me.
