16 years ago, I had returned from an early-morning 5 a.m. walk in San Diego County. I had injured my knee in a football game and doc told me to walk only. I was sitting in my garage watching the morning news, doing some basic PT, when the first news flashed on-screen.
Like everyone else, I sat there horrified, shocked. At first, there was the initial reporting saying a plane crashed into one of the Twin Towers, it might be an accident.
As I sat there mortified, a fellow Green Beret called: “Tilt, can you believe this shit?”
I didn’t answer quickly enough for him, “Are you there, Tilt? Turn on your fucking TV. You won’t believe this shit.”
