We Remember

When 9-11 happened I was working at KTRE in Lufkin,





Texas, I was upset I wasn’t covering the story more up close


and personal. It was my day off and my phone rang several


James Michael Doughty




times, waking me up. I listened to the messages, one of which


was my sister telling me she was praying for me. I turned on


the TV and fell to my knees. I said a quick prayer and went to


work. All those children left without a mother or father—it


was the first time I realized I wasn’t alone as the only kid


who would grow up without a dad.
