im so happy to see so many bloggers remembering the tradgedy. there is a group of over 3400 bloggers who each got issued a name of one of the 2996 victims of that day. please read my tribute to Matthew. I have left a link at the bottom of my post that will take you , or anmyone else, to the list of all the participating bloggers!
i was getting my little gang ready for school. i turn the tv on and watch the news as soon as i wake up..i was stunned..i couldn't stop crying..i was overwhelmed with confusion and i couldn't make myself wake the little ones who were not up yet..the time difference is 2hrs later than NY..it took me forever to get into school, i didn't want to go..i was hoping they shut it..i was terrified..the school was in our city's army base...a horrible day, a sickening reminder of what men is capable of and for what? i don't get it. i hope i never do.
I was in shock. In many ways I still am.
My husband can be a prankster, so when he first told me I didn't believe him. He's in construction, so he's at work real early, so when he called me to tell me, I thought he was just trying to get my lazy butt out of bed. I wouldn't ever think, that this tragedy would ever happen, so I was in SHOCK!!It makes me really sad to think of all the love and joy that was taken away from family and friends.Really beautiful post, Catch!
Very nice post. Thank you, my friend.
I do remember. It was terrifying.
Who could 4-get! I was attending college, (raising 5 kids, I soon was unable 2 concentrate--forcing me 2 temporarily drop-out 5 weeks before obtaining an Associates Degree) :"(In times of crisis, the obvious decision isn't always our best!
Catch,Oh yes I remeber;I was between surgeries (I administer anesthesia) and walked into the lounge to see tower 1 smoking. One of the men in the room said a plane had hit the tower. We thought it was an accident, but then we watched in absolute horror when the second plane flew deliberately into tower 2. It was incomprehensible, we were actually paralyzed and speechless.rel
I said it over at Mayden's, but, the way I see it, we all took a great loss that day and have made several more losses since then.For me, this morning, I painted the towers (sort'a) and the light thing they had goin' fer a while before beginning construction on the "new" towers, but, I'm with k9 on that.Should just leave the hole, clean it up, and leave it as a forever reminder .....
I don't think this will be a day that any of us can ever forget - nor should we forget.
I was taking my 6 year old to school and holding my 4 month old son when I turned on the tv. I saw the towers smoking and the picture of the pentagon in the lower corner. My first thought was, "This is it....the end of the world as we know it....it will never be the same." I took my daughter to school and came back home and watched as the towers fell holding my son, I think that was the worst moment was watching them fall. I also remember watching everyone in London get out of their cars and have a moment of silence.
I have that time on my post and will never forget. I think it was a wonderful idea to do the tributes.
***********************just a note to tell you that the blog idea for Karen was brilliant..i left my mark already. God bless your brilliance but your kind heart as well..just so you know, someone mentioned something there about you, pics, comments and flirting, lol..************************
Catch, I do indeed remember that day, as you well know from my own 911 remembrance post. Thankfully I was at home when I learned the news, unlike you who heard it on the radio. I think if I were in a car at that time, I would've had to pull over and collect myself.
Your tribute is is true "Catch" form.In-your-face billboards that wow you with information.I like it!Your stuff makes me, no, drives me to comment!Cheers!my remember is up
Yes, I do. I also remember feeling sick to my stomach for at least a week. I feel that way again when I think about it or watch it on TV. And yet, I can't look away.
