I had been a newspaper editor for less than a year when the world changed.

I was sitting at the desk in my home office with the television on. Smoke was billowing out of one of the towers of the World Trade Center. The anchors were talking about reports that a small plane had flown into the building.

Chris Lykins is the executive editor of the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung and the Seguin Gazette.
