Remember 9/11

Remember 9/11?
Remember how we came together and how much we admired the heroes?
Remember how horrified we were at the plane going into the World Trade Center, and later at the Pentagon?remember the brave pilot , crew, and passengers who saved our White House by stopping one plane from going there?
I remember all of the heroism and all of the deep feelings that brought us together on that day.
What do you remember from that day?

I just remember total shock as we watched it live on television. It was hard to believe it was for real. Then we felt great sadness.

Hi Natalie,

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving me those nice words.

Yes, I do miss Europe a lot. I just have to save up to travel. I hope that I can take a vacation next year.

I remember the horror of it all. I remember my sorrow for the people trapped in the buildings, some jumping in desperation. I remember thinking that the world would not be the same. A year later we had the train bombings here in Madrid and the horror came back.

Thanks so much for your generous comments. They means a lot to me.
Yes, the books you mentioned are great books and I have read them all. Any other recommendations, I love to read.

Yes, I remember. I also remember the days following and that people went out of their way to be kind one to another. I wish that part of the legacy had remained, but unfortunately I see more often than not, that we're back to being hurried, and selfish.

I am also thankful for those that wear uniforms, and individuals that protect and serve others. They are my heros .. the one that passed that day and the ones that follow day-to-day in order for us to enjoy our freedoms.

I think we all remember this day and where we were and what we were doing when we heard the horrific news.
I put my flags out in my yard to honor the people that were killed.I
would have liked to have seen more flags out..There were only a few banks that lowered their flags to half staff..

What a nice tribute, Natalie!! One thing I remember from that day, was driving back and forth (SEVERAL TIMES) from my son's school to my parents... I was so confused about whether or not to take him to school that day... can't remember now what I ended up doing. That day was truly horrifying, the images on the tv are forever stuck in my mind. To think of what the victims went through that day still makes me cry.

Hi, Nat. I remember watching the horrors unfold on TV. Holding little baby Hannah Bug close. Breathing prayers for our nation, for Pete who was at work and Bubba who was at school.

I hope we remember. Not just the loss of life, but also the fact that this was not just a tragic accident. That this was a diliberate display of evil. I hope no matter who is running Washington that we will never cease to hunt down all involved.
