Before and After

“What is amazing is that in that moment, there was a moment before — that we saw that plane, that second plane — and there was a moment after, and it’s like two different worlds, those two moments. I mean, literally, I can feel like I can remember the exact second when the whole world changed and my life changed forever. Because one minute, it was a building on fire and the next minute, none of us were safe. That’s what it felt like. There was no sense of where to go, what to do, how to protect ourselves, what was going to happen next.”
