Never Forgotten

9-11
To all those that left this world and to those that are still here....
“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “

- President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001


Adding this after being asked...

Where were you when the events of September 11, 2001 happened?
I was actually in Hawaii... I woke up and took my wee pup outside came back in and turned the TV on... Watched as a plane hit one of the Towers and thought to myself "Hmmm that's a crazy movie".... Then as I realized what was really happening I rushed to the bedroom and told my (ex) boyfriend what was happening... He then ran to the TV... phone in hand.... eyes fixed on the tube.... Calling to find out when he flew out (he was a pilot)...

  2. We will never forget 9/11. I was in college at the time. I remember my daughter got on the Head Start bus and I went inside and was watching the news. My first class wasn't until later that day so I was able to see everything happen on the news that morning. A couple of my classes were canceled that day and my boss closed up the deli early and sent us all home. I can't believe that was eight years ago.

  4. I was watching tv and saw it unfolding. I don't think I left the tv that day for more than a few minutes at a time. Devastating and unforgettable.

  5. The day made me feel like the world should have stopped spinning.... every 9.11 since then I feel the same. It should be recognized as a full day of honor. I think the country should take the entire day off, line the streets with American flags and spend the day thinking about how very lucky we are and how very unfortunate the families of these victoms are....

    Such a sad, somber day.
