Remembering 911: 21 years later…
(Sept. 11, 2022)
I’ll never forget this day… I was at work on a regular day, or so I thought. You can read my full acount of my morning HERE.
I Will Never Forget!
This day is the largest event that has happened in my lifetime of 70 years. Our country was attacked… I felt the equivalent of how my parents and grandparents felt when Pearl Harbor was attacked. The only difference was that we retalliated against Japan for that attack and defeated them. 911 has truly never been vindicated for that attack.
My husband and I watched for weeks… watching over and over… of the daily events… and finally into the begining of the cleanup… it’s all we watched! New York City was under ciege… and the city was closed… you could not even leave Manhatten that day. I am thankful I had no family trapped there.
There was “no other” TV programming on the air… and no one wanted to watch anything else!
The attack in Manhattan, Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania affected everyone, and it hurt me inside tremendously when I heard others, who didn’t live near the area, say… “it doesn’t affect me, I’m not near there.” This affected all Americans! This was a time when we all needed to come together more than ever!
This was an attack on Amerian soil… it affected you… and I will never forget! It was an event that changed our country forever!
God Bless all who lost their life on that day… America will never forget you!
