Monday Afternoon - September 10, 2001

In 2001 I worked for a company that sold document & content management software to foreign banks. The upper floors of both WTC towers housed the offices of Japanese foreign banks like Dai-Ichi Kangyo, Yamaichi Securities, Daiwa Securities. I also called on the NYMEX exchange, which was located at 5 WTC. For many years I frequented the WTC for sales meetings with all sorts of companies. The WTC was like my second office, and I spent much of my time on a payphone.

A friend of mine worked for Deloitte Touche, and they occupied the entire 92nd floor.

On Monday, September 10th, my friend called and we met for lunch after my meeting at The Cotton Exchange 5 WTC. My pal just happened to have his camera, and snapped this photo of me outside of 5 WTC the afternoon of Monday September 10th. 

Years later, after the attack of 9/11, I can’t help but think about what might have happened if my sales prospect re-scheduled our meeting to Tuesday instead of Monday the 10th. 

Sympathies to those that lost their lives on 9/11 and their families. You are gone but NOT forgotten!
