What scared you most about the events of 9/11?

What scared me the most was seeing the first Tower being hit and then the second tower being hit it was surreal.

What scared you most about the events of 9/11?

Planes...that they could become weapons of destruction. For months after 9-11, whenever I heard the jet engines of an airplane I would always look up and wonder if it was too low. Lisle tends to be an incoming flight pattern for O'Hare Airport, over the town and out to the lake. Always did I look up and think about it hitting something in Chicago.

Did the events of 9/11 change the way you define a hero?

I think that 9/11 proved that a true hero is anyone who is willing to put others above their own fears. 9/11 also proved that crying wasn't a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength and love.
