9/11


I will never forget this day.  I was sitting up watching Sandra Sully on the late news when they went to the breaking news in New York and I saw the horrific footage of that second plane crashing through the World Trade Centre.  At first I thought it was the Y2K bug screwing with the instrumentation of the planes, how could we possibly comprehend that another human being could deliberately commit such an evil and cruel act.

It's one of those moments in history where we remember what we were doing when we heard the news. I was doing the same as you after being out for late night shopping. We shouldn't ever forget the heroes and the victims.

I was up late that night and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Everyone was asleep and I couldn't talk to anyone. We visited the site about 4 years ago, a very emotional experience.

I think for most of us we can remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we heard this terribly news. For us in the military living overseas...changed the way we lived in the military forever. My husband's job is now with Homeland Security and he is an Explosive Specialist at the airport. Each and every day intel messages and chatter are a part of our daily lives and each day is 9/11.

Have a Peace Filled day today -
It's beautiful here in the NYC area, and I'm so glad for the families at the memorial.

I remember that day with such shock and revulsion. My brother in law had called for lunch and after he left I put the news on the tv and just sat there in disbelief. I will never understand how someone can do what they did.

I know what you mean. For months afterwards, I would just stop what I was doing and periodically repeat, "They flew PLANES into buildings." It was just so incomprehensible to me then.
