We'll hear lots of stories this weekend connected to 9/11, each distinctly personal, yet we relate to them because we're all human. And yet I read a story Friday which stood out from the rest because of one fact: Frank Culbertson was the only American not on the planet when 9/11 occurred.
You read that right. NOT ON THE PLANET.
Why? Because he was Astronaut Frank Culbertson, stationed aboard the International Space station.
Calling in for a routine medical check, Culbertson's inquiry of how things were going in Mission Control was met with a reply of, "We're not having a very good day on Earth."
