We all remember where we were when the you know what hit the fan on September 11, 2001.
I was on the phone with my daughter that morning. She had the Today Show on and told me to put the television on. In a matter of moments, the two of us saw the second plane hit the second tower, live. I knew that was no accident.
Wild day. And the days and weeks after September 11 were surreal.
Here’s Billy Joel and his account of that day, September 11, 2001, the days that followed and how he did what he could to help.
“We’ll never forget. Nah, I don’t think it’ll be forgotten, but I think we’ve recovered a good deal. I know once they nailed (Osama) Bin Laden — that’s another thing that put it behind us,” Billy Joel has said.
“I don’t know, this city has great resolution. There’s a lot of resolve, there’s a lot of character here. You’re not gonna keep this place down.”
