So hard to believe that it's been 18 (חי, chai) years.
It seems like it was just yesterday.
I was finishing prayers with my students in #Chicago when we were told to proceed to the gym for a special announcement.
I still remember who told me the news, what he said, and the facial expression he used.
How could I forget?
😨The sheer terror and confusion.
😨The loss and destruction.
😨The sense of powerlessness and emptiness.
