It’s hard to think about the way our lives were impacted by the terror attacks on September 11, 2,001 without remembering the concerns we all felt for loved ones who weren’t close to us then. Both our daughter and late son were attending Bowling Green State University that September, and back then the only way to get in touch with them was through the land line telephones they had in their rooms. Remember that 20 years ago most folks didn’t yet have cell phones, wide spread text messaging was still several years down the road and the major platform for young people to communicate was through Myspace. Most parents and grand parents back then didn’t have any connection to it. Rumors that day that one of the terrorists jets was headed toward Cleveland or Toledo kept us on pins and needles for hours that day. There was panic at the thought that the attacks of September 11th might have just been the first of others to come, but I can only imagine what the panic level would have been if everyone had access to the information and misinformation that’s part of the social media world we all live in today. That’s the way I see it.
