Dr. Edward Quiros and his wife, Dr. Corazon P. Quiros of Borger, were just two of the many people who saw the attacks on September 11, 2001.
â€śEverything just stopped,â€ť Corazon said.
On 9/11, Dr. C.P. and her husband were in New York City where they were spending a few days to attend a re-certification review course for the American College of Surgeons Board.
â€śOur hotel was right beside Empire State Building,â€ť said Dr. C.P.
At the time that it happened, Dr. C.P. was waiting for her sister-in-law, who was coming from New Jersey.

On Friday evening, the Borger Bulldogs benefited from their strong running game and physical defense to come away with a 27-23 over the Bushland Falcons at Bulldog Stadium.
After giving up 571 yards to Caprock last Thursday, the Bulldog defense looked like a completely different unit on Friday night limiting the Falconsâ€™ offense to 246 yards of total offense.
On the offensive side of the ball, the Bulldogs did not have to worry about moving the ball in the air due to racking up 342 yards on the ground, led senior Adam Bumpus rushing for 228 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries.
WHITE DEER-It only took 12 seconds for the West Texas Comanches to let White Deer know they were not going to be very gracious visitors Friday night. Senior Colin Coleman took the opening kick off 80 yards for a touchdown, as WT High played their first road game of the season. Alex Ramirez added the PAT and WT was up 7-0 with most of the first quarter left.
STRATFORD-On Friday evening, ehe Sanford-Fritch Eagles fought hard against the Straford Elks but couldnâ€™t prevail 34-18. The absence of key players due to injuries, and multiply penalties would be key reasons for the loss.
In the first quarter, the Elks scored quick on a run by senior RB Alex Chavoya. No other points were scored in that quarter.
Second quarter had Sanford-Fritch answering with many exchanges by both Bryans (Chris & Terry) before Chris ran a short yardage touchdown. The extra point didnâ€™t count.
