Ohh wow you really helped them out at this time of crisis! You are so strong to be able to be thinking about them and their families and risking your own life. So did you go with anyone to help them find their families near the area of the collapse of the Twin Towers?
No, I did not. Everyone in my work, including myself were very fortunate to find out that our families were safe. We all hugged each other and cried tears of joy. We could not believe how good our luck was. I distinctly remember many of my coworkers yelling, "JESUS LOVES ME!"
I just can't handle this. WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS? IF I KNEW THIS WAS GONNA HAPPEN I WOULD'VE NEVER LET MY SISTER COME HERE. I WOULD MAKE SURE SHE STAYED HOME SO THAT SHE COULD BE SAFE.
I really hope so, boss!
Guys, it will all be okay. We need to all just calm down. We got this. Together, we can help each other out. Everyone at this time should call their families another time. Make sure everything is okay. If not, I can come with you guys and help out with whatever is needed. Just please make sure YOU are okay. Remember right now we may not be sure that our families are safe, but we should be sure that WE are safe at all times. I really hope everyone in all of your families are safe. God is with us!
So weren't you thinking about yourself as well? Didn't you want to leave so that you could be safe?
No. It was like at that moment, I was still fulfilling my job as a "boss" even though we were not working. As a boss, I felt like I had an obligation to help these people out and I genuinely wanted their families and them to be safe. Many of these people had family working in the Twin Towers or near it and it was very hard to contact them because most of the time they weren't picking up. This made me feel so bad and I knew I had to step in and help them out. I offered to drive them near the area where the Twin Towers had collapsed to see if they could find their families.
I tried reassuring them everything would be alright. However, I knew they would not believe this so I had to make sure they at least kept themselves safe. We could not afford losing any more people. I also wanted to help them out as much as possible, and thought if they needed any help finding their families I would help them. At that time, I could care less about myself. It was just about everyone else. I could not let these people down.
