Wasn’t gonna post about 9/11 but

I came across this iPhone app (iTunes Link) called 9/11 Numbers that simply shook me to my core.

I can remember very clearly walking into my office in Orange County, seeing some co-workers in the big conference room with one of those TV/VCR carts (didn’t even know we had any) watching TV. It went down hill from there.

These are a few screen captures that jumped out at me, but each number is significant, the app is free, if you ever find yourself forgetting, load it up.

    I’m lucky in that no one I (directly) knew was hurt or killed. My good friend Mindy Troutman was in the city, didn’t work in the towers. A member of the car forum I belonged to at the time was killed.
