Fear. Worry. Concern. Does this make me look fat? What says happy grad-school-attending alumnus?

That morning, I was picking my outfit for a college alumni event. I was worried about what clothes I should wear, how my hair was looking and whether I’d be able to find the hotel downtown. I heard the news on Howard Stern – thought it was some new skit they were doing. I turned on the TV and watched the 2nd plane hit the Tower. Fighter jets from Andrews screamed over campus as they scrambled to guard the White House, the Capital, home.

Concern. Worry. Fear.
