A Commute Home To Remember

Shocked by the video images we saw the morning of Sept. 11 on our work PCs, like so many other firms we had a half day and went home to handle whatever awaited. In my case, the Metro was shut down at Pentagon, and I ended my trip in from MD walking home from Dupont Circle to avoid lines and crowds. Arriving back in Rosslyn, all streets were closed to traffic with police and military personnel everywhere. I could see why when I looked out my 12th floor condo window and saw the Pentagon smoking. I made a few calls around to various organizations to see what I could do, and I was very glad Congress and the President decided to take immediate action to prevent such things from occurring again.
