I remember this day well and painfully. It seemed like the longest day I'd felt in a long time. I was greeting my students in the morning as they came to class. My first graders started to tell me that a plane had hit the tall buildings in New York. I told them it was probably a small airplane and nobody in the big building would be hurt, I'm sure. The rest of the day was a nightmare as I learned the story throughout the day and some parents came to bring their children home because suddenly, life was uncertain.
A sad sad day, Reader.
The scope and horror of that day are impossible to forget. I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around those images. Surely they couldn't be real. But they were.
Dear Wil,We live a mile north of the Trade Center and my husband saw the second plane hit. It was such a sad and horrifying day --we lost friends too.But I feel even more sad at the current behavior of SOME Americans who are being hateful towards ALL Muslims.WE need to remember the heroic firefighters and others who died but not use this sad remembrance as an excuse for un-Christian behavior.Personally, we will stay close to home and take the dog for a walk and enjoy the pretty early autumn day.Love and greeting from New York.
It still makes my heart sink remembering this day. Probably by far the worse day for America. I agree with what Elizabeth said. We need to not judge all.. by what some.. chose to do.
I think that everyone remembers exactly what they were doing when they heard the awful news. It is important that we remember it each year.
It seems like these are pictures from some awful horror movie.
It was one really scary, horrific day.Something I will never forget.
Thank you for a wonderful memorial to 9/11. It is a day that still seems unbelievable even after nine years.
I too am with Elizabeth. Totally agree. I remember sitting transfixed in front of the TV. Awful day.
One of the saddest day of this century! :(
Een dag om nooit meer te vergeten
