“[The 20th anniversary of 9/11] reminds me of how lucky we are to live in a country where those types of horrible events are rare.” – Dale Gross

At 35, Dale Gross walked into Harper College, where he was employed at the time, and was greeted by the sight of his boss sitting on a set of stairs, obviously very upset. That is the exact moment when Gross learned what was going on. A plane had struck one of the Twin Towers, and reality hit. 

His boss asked him to go and get TV carts so teachers and students alike could watch the news and avoid spreading misinformation and fear around the campus.
