Remembering 9-11-01, Where Were You?
I remember exactly what I was doing and where I was when the TV news, playing in the background said a small plane flew into the Twin Tower in New York City. I was getting dressed for work and got drawn to the TV screen to see the replays of the supposed accident. Within minutes the story changed and everyone was on high alert. I questioned whether I should continue on to work and whether that was safe.
I couldn't keep my eyes off the TV trying to put the peaces together as to what was happening. I decided to go on to work and while driving and listening to the news, I heard that a second plane flew into Tower Two. Now the word terrorists was being used and I felt like our world had changed.
Since I lived near a military installation, Ft. Campbell I began to think that our troops may on alert and deployment was surely coming in the near future. But who was the enemy?
I continued watching the news after I arrived at my office. Pieces of information starting coming in about the various hijacked planes, the crashes and then the two Towers fell. It was too much to digest, totally shocking and unbelievable. Then the Pentagon was hit and there was a downed plane in Pennsylvania. Everyone at the office was glued to the TV trying to figure out what was happening, who had done these terrible things and why.
Our lives changed in a moment. We no longer feel totally safe. We have been taught to be on guard and watchful, questioning circumstances around us. The trust we had of our neighbors and strangers has been shaken.
We began a new regard for those that are our first responders, our military, firefighters and police forces. Suddenly we were shaken and aware of the danger they encounter every day in our behalf. We can't thank them enough for all they do and putting themselves in harm's way to protect our freedoms.
Thousands were lost, families were broken but millions of lives were affected all over the world. Things will never be as they were before that day on 9-11-01.
Where Were You on 9-11-01? Remembering the Day.
