9/11 5 years later

On the morning of 9/11/2001, I awoke early. I don’t know why I just couldn’t sleep anymore. I was living in Memphis at the time. I decided to go ahead and go into work (UT Memphis research on preventive medicine) and get some things done before anyone else arrived. I was there by 7:30 AM local time (CST). I remember I was in the Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) room doing calibrations and heard the news on TV in the breakroom across the hall about a plane flying into the World Trade Center. So I went across the hall into the breakroom. I was watching live TV when the second plane hit the World Trade Center.

I guess it helps you understand how unusual this day was for me if you knew some of my personal habits.

  1. When working a day job I usually have problems waking up in time to make it to work on time.
  2. I never turn on the TV in the morning.
  3. I rarely watch the news.

I was working with one of the reasearch participants when the 3rd plane hit the Pentagon and the towers fell. I came out of a test and asked about the towers and was told that they had fallen. And about the plane hitting the Pentagon. And about the bomb on Capitol Hill (which turned out not to exsist).

Many people I talked to said that they were up early this morning, many even before thier morning alarms. This may sound strange coming from someone who’s strongly into science and what can be proven/disproven, but I believe in energy fields. I believe that Memphis has experienced such a negative history and that is why the area has such a strong negative field. I believe that the negative energy fields were so charged that those of us sensitive to it were experiencing insomnia. Because otherwise you have a hard time prying me out of bed.
