This is what took place at 8:46 a.m & 9:13 a.m. that fateful morning on September 11, 2001. NYC Twin Towers were attacked right in front of my eyes. The feelings of horror that I had, the depression that kicked in, the nightmares I had of those people who weren't lucky enough to make it out as the building burned like an inferno, and eventually crumbled into one big pile of rumble. Some jumped out of windows to their deaths. I don't think I would have stuck around to burn to death. They were brave souls let me tell you.What became of the city when the buildings crumbled, was unbelievable. People were scurrying anywhere to be safe. They were running from the smoke hat was chasing right their way. Look at the photo below to see what I mean.
The first fighters and first responders carry this man to safety. Look at the smoke and white smog everywhere. I can't imagine what that was doing to their lungs. They were happy to be alive. The police, fire fighters, and all of the brave souls that perished on that fateful day will be remembered always for their bravery! The heroes that took over Flight 93 to try to stop it from hitting the Pentagon all lost their lives being brave. The chillen phone calls from men calling home to their wives telling them they wouldn't be coming home, and that they loved them, the messages left on voice machines for loved ones. Let us not forget the brave men who had children on the way, when he lost their lives. I saw a Barbara Walters television special about all of the 9/11 kids now ad then. What they had grown into was nothing less than amazing individuals. The single moms who raised their families without their husbands. I could go on and on talking about such a terrible tragedy that the world faced on the fateful day on September 11, 2001.
All know is that I'm happy to see the county has started to rebuild, their our plaques with each person who perished name on it, and the country has reached out to help these individuals who lost so much. As President George Bush did say "Yes, we will get though this", and he was right about that! SO here on this Sunday, September 11, 2011, ten years after that fateful day, we as a nation, pull together to remember the thousands who lost their lives on that crazy day, what they gave for us, their freedom for ours. You will always be n my heart along with all of the families affected by this. So at 8:46 a.m this morning and 9:13 a.m., I will take a moment and remember each and every one of you and how you sacrificed your life for others. Thank you all for your bravery, and heroism! I will never forget it.
