Remembering

Where were you on 9/11? It is hard to believe it was 10 years ago and to me it’s still unbelievable that it even happened.  That morning I was walking into my office and the phone was ringing, I picked it up and was told that a plane had hit one of the twin towers. To this day I still can’t think about it without getting emotional. I don’t understand how anyone could condone those horrific actions.

  • We had just gotten home from Nantucket the night before and were sitting in our family room with my 9-month old son (my husband had been laid off just a few weeks before, so he was home with me). Before my kids, I was a Today Show junkie and of course that morning had the Today show on. I saw Matt Lauer’s interview get interrupted and watched “live” via the Today show. We lost our friend that day. He worked for Cantor Fitzgerald in the North Tower at the World Trade Center, so we spent the entire day with CNN on trying to call everyone we knew in New York and his wife – by mid morning we couldn’t even get through on the telephone lines. By the next day, we were hopeful that Jack would call, or someone would have heard from him, but by that evening we had a feeling he didn’t make it.

    Did you see the ESPN tribute to the Man in the Red Bandana? It’s up on my blog (from mid-week last week) but you can YouTube as well.

  • I had packed the kids into the car to go downtown to purchase TKKS ticket at the World Trade Center since the lines where always shorter there. My friend called me and stopped me from driving into town. I watched in horror on the TV what terrible things unfolded! Like you I am still in tears when I see the images or hear the people who suffered so!
    It’s beyond me, how anybody can do such things to others!
    One of my close neighbors was lost there, he was a firefighter!

    I was in Westport, Ct at the library and I too, had a friend run away from the towers as they were coming down, and as he said, it made him realize how people in other countries must feel with constant bombs, going off in public places and how we for so long in America had a feeling of safety that was taken that day and now is shared with many others thru out the world…

    I was a huge trauma for all of us…
