I WONDER . . .

Thirteen years ago, I stood in the library of Wake Tech Community College as a representative of my anthropology class. I was to report back on the news reports about the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.

As the first tower fell, I heard someone behind me mutter, “Good. America deserves this. America is in everyone’s business.”

I turned around and looked into the face of a handsome, young, well-dressed, African American man and saw . . . the future.

Over the years, I’ve often thought about that young man and wondered where he is now, what he thinks, and if he ever paid back his student loans.
