I’ve spent most the day watching remembrance services and coverage from September 11, 2001. Ten years has past since our country changed…since we all changed.
The pictures and video footage from that day are the most devastating thing, out of my reach, that I have ever seen. I simply cannot fathom what those in New York City were experiencing that day. I can’t imagine those on the other end of the phone line.
We will never forgot. I will never forget.
I will never forget feeling sick for what I saw. I will never forget thinking about my cousin that lived in NYC , who I knew was to be traveling around the day. I remember wondering if my dad, who worked for the Federal Government, would be in danger.
I will never forget wondering if something more was to come. Would something come that would impact my life? Oh yes. That day impacted all of our lives in some way, shape or form.
I remember sobbing for the people in and around the towers, on the plane and their families.
I remember asking God to just make it stop.
I was a senior in high school. I had left school and was at the insurance agency I was currently working at. I walked in right as people were finding out.
Our country was extremely devastated that day. However, it became a much better place after. I believe September 11, 2001 is really when we became “One Nation Under God.” All we could trust was our faith.
I can’t not watch the coverage. It sucks me in. Hearing those talk who shared phone calls with their loved ones before they were murdered tears.me.apart. I’ve been to New York City more times than I can count and seeing the video of the chaos on the streets from 9/11/01 simply takes my breath away.
The men and women who were part of search and rescue, those have made it their life mission to figure this attack out, fight for our country and remember those who were lost have won this war…..these people define a hero. I’m very proud to be an American and forever grateful for the people that fight for our country.
