As I See It
Barbara France, Managing Editor
I had every intention of going to the Lassen versus Chico game in Chico on Friday, Sept. 2.
It was a gorgeous day and I actually could take the time away from the news desk and go. But, health issues and the anticipation of a winding road changed my plans at the last minute.
In retrospect, I wish I had gone to the game so I would have seen firsthand what occurred between the Lassen High School parents and students.
My parents had the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, my grandparents had the attack on Pearl Harbor.
And like they won’t forget those days, I can’t imagine never remembering what happened that Tuesday morning or in the months that followed.
It has been 10 years since planes carrying Al Qaeda members on a suicide mission put fear in our hearts and changed our routine forever.
Sept. 6, 2011 — I could hardly believe that the newspaper was planning on covering the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Flight 93.
I kept thinking it couldn’t have been a decade.
But, I have my own timeline living with me. Let me explain — Sept. 11, 1994 I was blessed with the birth of my youngest of three daughters.
