Today marks the 9th anniversary of the tragic events that took place on 9/11/2001. We were all in one way or another affected by the events that took place that day...either from personal loss or pain felt for the loss of fellow Americans! Today we were remember all those that felt the pain the most!
♥ God bless the heroes that perished trying to help others and God bless those that died in fear while trapped in a burning tower or target plane ♥
This day will be forever known as one of the most painful days in American history!
I remember the details of that day like it was yesterday...
I was at work and my boyfriend (now husband) called to tell me what had happened. I didn't have a TV at my office so I was totally unaware that we were under attack. He was telling me about how the first plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers when the second plane hit. I remember the sounds of his coworkers screaming and hollering in the background. I was frozen - not understanding why this was happening. His words that moment stayed with me - he said, "Babe, mark my words...we're going to war!" He was right! That was the moment we knew that it was war and life would never be the same :(
I went to the TV repair shop we had next door and borrowed a small set. No work got done that day! The phone's stopped ringing and it felt like the world had stopped turning. My co-worker's cousin happened to be visiting us from NY and she spent the whole afternoon panicked because she couldn't get a hold of her family. I was so worried for her!
We all went home early that day. My mom, who works in Downtown Miami, also left early since we had no idea which other cities were possible threats. Fortunately, there were no other attacks than the ones in NY, the Pentagon and Flight 93 - but it was enough! It was enough to cause a world of fear and pain for thousands of people! It was enough to change the course of our History! It was enough to change the world we live in!
My only fond memory of that day was watching everyone unite regardless of their differences. We were ALL just AMERICANS that day and that was a beautiful thing to watch ♥
Where were you the day the world stopped turning?
