9/11

Let us never forget. 
 
 
I, like most of you, will never forget this day.  I was a senior in high school and just walked into my senior English class when a fellow classmate was watching it live on the television.  Naturally, we all freaked out and the entire school sat in silence as we watched the second plane hit the second tower. 
 
Images are burned into my brain from that morning.  People jumping from buildings to save their lives.  Even at 18 years old, I knew my world was forever impacted by this moment.  And now 13 years later, and it still is something I think about daily. 
 
Today if you are the praying kind, then do that today.  Our country needs it.  Our country deserves it.

  1. Great post! It gives me shivers up and down my spine just to think about what I was doing at that very moment, and then realizing how many of my friends and family were going to be part of the effort to make things right. It is definitely a day I will never forget!

  2. Isn't it amazing that many of us know exactly what we were doing that day and in that moment! I was in 9th grade, and I remember watching it all but I think the older I have gotten the more it has made an impact on me. I know the last couple of years when I have watched something on it, I bawl my eyes out! Back then I think I was too worried about what was going on after school :)
