Today is a day of reflection. On September 11, 1973, it was a wild morning in Santiago when General Pinochet came to power. On September 11, 1996, I arrived in San Jose,California on a bus from Texas. I was listening to Portuguese music on my radio. Today is 15 years for me in the San Francisco Bay area. On September 11, 1998, 6 US Marshals arrested me at a Mexican restaurant in San Jose's Willow Glen area. I was charged with contempt of court. On September 11, 2001 there was the awful shock of the 9-11 attack. I called Elena and my step son Pedro to make sure they were all right. It is a miracle that Bin Laden did not concentrate that entire attack in Washington ,DC and decapitate the government.
