Never-to-Be-Forgotten Memories From 9/11/01
Every American will remember precisely what we were doing on Sept. 11, 2001. I was four months pregnant and Credit Union Times senior Washington reporter at the time. That was the day Credit Union House was scheduled to open, and I was getting ready to cover the grand opening celebration.
Our editor called me and said a plane had flown into one of the World Trade Center towers. At the time the thought was that it may be an accident. I flippantly asked, “Were there any credit unions in there?” The second plane hit while we were on the phone, and there was no question that this was no accident.
