Unbelievable that it's been 11 years. I remember it like it was yesterday.

We were outside the bank when I turned on the radio and heard that "something" had hit the WTC, we ditched our plans for the day and went home and turned on the TV. We got sat down just in time to see the second tower get hit live. We spent the whole day in and out of the house and the mall, wanting to be by ourselves, but also needing other people.

Certainly. Was talking about it with some friends today. It's is amazing how the impact of that day has resonated through, and how it's effects impact daily life today, in so many ways.

RIP to those lost, and my thoughts and prayers go out to the families effected/survivors, and first responders.


I hope that one day, we can function, and work together as Humans, undefined by race, creed, color or religion. If all the energy that is put into hate, could be put into something useful for humanity, imagine what we could accomplish.

security is tight in the city tonight.

a few minutes ago, some dumbass tried to cross the lower level of the gw bridge (affectionately known around here as the martha washington) in a u-haul box truck while towing a car on a trailer.

the port authority cops that had the truck surrounded didn't look too happy.

the skyline of the city is particularly beautiful tonight as it's really crisp and clear out. just like 11 years ago.

you know, a lot of people say we should never forget. i know that i couldn't even if i tried. the anger still burns deeply.

It sure is hard to believe it's been 11 years. I remember like it was yesterday, too - I live in a small town but it's adjacent to a huge military installation, which our town is pretty much dependant upon for survival. I was the director for a child development center at the time and by the time I got into work at 7:45 most of the parents had already picked their children back up. It was one of the rare mornings I didn't turn on the news as I was getting ready for work. There are 2 schools on the base, so many parents couldn't get to their kids for hours and were in panic mode.

We won't forget!! God bless America.

We had been married for just 11 days. I was up early and a friend called and said to turn on the TV. I did so just as the second plane hit the WTC. I was horrified at what I had just witnessed but it didn't really sink in. I cried out and my hubby woke up. We just sat there holding each other in disbelief, not being able to take our eyes off the screen but wanting to at the same time.

Every year I have tried to do something nice for someone, preferably anonymously. It is also my MIL's birthday.

Our parents had Pearl Harbor, we have 911, I hope our children can have peace.

A good day to reflect on what is important in our lives.

It was with great relief that, after working at the WTC for 23 years, I was able to move out in 1995.
