This weekend marks the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. Amidst all the other fascinating, terrifying, unifying stories shared, and the gatherings planned to mark the event this Sunday, we give you the legendary news anchor Tom Brokaw’s recount of what he was doing that fateful morning, thanks to intrepid reporter and patriot, Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report. What was the former NBC Nightly News man up to? Welp, it was yoga.
He was at an early morning class, and received a call about the first plane (when the class was over, we gather).
It took him everything he knew to try and get through the day, says Mr. Brokaw, who anchored and kept us informed throughout the tragic event. Maybe his wife coerced him into it, but we’d like to believe the yoga class in the morning helped him find clarity and strength for the rest of us watching at home.
