Eerie Quiet

I was on my way to work on 11 Sep 2001 when I heard of the first plane on the radio. I got to work and everyone was watching a small tv when we saw the second plane. We were all told to go home and we would be contacted later. I lived in a rural area and the quiet of not hearing any planes flying was so eerie. I heard military planes once or twice, which was not common in my area. Some days later when I heard the first commercial plane in the sky, I felt quite nervous. I wasn't called back to work for two weeks. The nervous feeling has never completely left me since 9/11/01.
