This is one in a series of essays that will run throughout the week in which readers reflect on the events of 9/11 and how that day changed their lives. Today's essay is written by Michele Bissenden, of Orange.
My family and I were very fortunate not to have personally lost anyone in this horrific tragedy. My experience has to do with my wedding date, Sept. 15th. That Tuesday was my first day off of work to prepare for the wedding. I got in my car that morning to set off for the gym and immediately heard something on the radio regarding a plane hitting one of the Twin Towers.
