Remembering September 11
September 07, 2012
Do you remember where you were on September 11, 2001? This is one of those days in your life you will always remember, like John F. Kennedy's assassination. This was a moment in our lives when Americans felt connected to each other because of our shared pain and grief over the attacks and loved ones who died. We mourned our fallen country men and women together for a long time.
I felt like the world was ending. After the first Tower fell, I knew it was just a matter of time before the second one would come down. I also kept wondering how many planes had been hijacked. It is sad to say, I was thankful it was only four. That day stands out as one of the roughest moments of my life. I was standing in Newark Airport, rushing around wondering what had happening, as they were closing down the airport.
If you are interested in learning more about events of this day or just want to reflect on the events of this day, you could check out the books, A Place of Remembrance: Official Book of National September 11 Memorial and America is Under Attack: September 11, 2001: The day the Towers Fell. A couple of DVDs that might be good to watch are: World Trade Center and Engineering Ground Zero.
