Before 9-11

Twin Towers

I think the whole world will never forget - I was awoken by a phone call from a friend in Michigan. She asked me to turn on the TV. She said "people are jumping out of windows..." Sitting on the edge of my bed, I stared at the TV screen in horror and I was in a night mare.

Stunned and numb I watched tragedy unfold ... I can't believe people are jumping out of windows ... when the second plane hit the Twin Tower...and that was the beginning of my day September 11, 2001.

Our Mom will forever remember the moment she heard the news as our Dad was there in NYC not too far away from the towers. Thankfully he was OK, but it is a day that none of us will ever forget. Today we honor all those who lost their lives or who suffered in any way as a result of the attacks.

It would be good to go around and ask the bloggers where they were when it happened. But I've thought of it too late! Did you take that picture, so sad!

As you, I remember exactly where I was. I had already gone to work and followed all the hubbub into the conference where the TV was on just in time to see the second plane hit. What a day. In God we must trust. BTW did you ever learn how to crochet using plastic shopping bags?
I just did yesterday. I can't wait to try it out.

I'll never forget that day either.

Hi Doris it is amazing how so many of us can recall the exact moment when we heard of this horror. The feelings of absolute fear, horror and utter shock...we need to always remember and never ever forget for all of those innocents that were lost and injured. May God comfort their families and friends.

I lived with my parents back then and was busy getting ready for work when it was happening. I didn't have the radio or tv on so I didn't know what was going on. When I came out from my bedroom, my father tried to tell me what was happening but it seems like I was running a little bit behind and was in a hurry so didn't really grasp the situation. I got in my car and listened to a cd on the long drive to work. It wasn't until I actually got to work that I grasped the reality of the situation. I worked in a call center back then and the phones were dead that day as people were busy watching the images on tv. When they did call, we could hear the tv on in the background.

yes, Doris, it is one of those events forever etched on the mind, similar to when we heard the news of John Kennedy's assassination.

Best to you this fall, San-Dee
