Twenty Years Ago Today...



September 11, 2001
A day Amercia was vilolated and we lost our innocence!
A day that will always be engrained in our memory.
A day to sit back and be thankful for our country.
To be thankful for our Freedom.
And remember those that lost their lives for their heroism!
Remember those broken families that survived and live in the land of the Brave. For their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters gave all.

I was at home on the computer and read where we were attacked. Not knowing the full impact, I went out and told Bud to turn on the TV "The Towers have been attacked". What enfolded that day was terror, sadness, and loss!
GOD BLESS THE USA!!

  3. It doesn't seem like that was 20 years ago already. I can still remember when I found out. For some reason I had gone home for lunch that day, turned on the tv and the news was showing what happened.

  5. I had just moved back to Philadelphia from Florida the summer before 9/11. Like you, I remember exactly where I was when I heard what had happened. What was so strange about that day was how gorgeous it was weather-wise in the Northeast. It was bright, sunny, and the sky didn't have a cloud in it. So it was incredibly hard to conceive the horror and darkness that was going on only an hour and a half away.

    I watched a recent 9/11 documentary last night and cried my eyes out.

    No matter how many years go by, 9/11 rocks me to the core. Whenever I go back to NYC and visit the 9/11 Memorial, it's so bittersweet because while beautiful, it's also a harsh reminder of all the lives lost that day.

    Beautiful tribute, Anni! Love your words!

    Thank you for sharing this today. X

  8. Twenty years seems so wrong. It feels so recent in our memories. The images and feelings of horror are still fresh. We all grieve today.

  9. I think our innocence was violated a long time ago but this tragedy reinforced how vulnerable we were and still are. It's a wound that will never heal.

    1. The people of America went to work, not knowing it was their last day on earth. We were filled with innocence and paid dearly!

  10. DH was still working then. He called me and said to turn on the TV. We were so 'shocked' that this could happen to us. I went outside and looked at the sky... it was blue and clear... and not a plane in sight. I remember how strange I felt... like the world had shifted. (and may still be shifting...)
    All those lives... so unexpected and unbelievable. Yes, we will always remember... and will always keep those who lost their lives (and their families) in our minds and hearts.

  12. We were having a leisurely breakfast when a neighbour came pounding on our door and told us to turn on the TV because horrible things were happening. It still fills my heart with horror.

  15. The day that everyone will remember where they were at the time that it happened. It was touching how many people are now just under 20 years of age whose mothers were pregnant with them and they lost a father or loved one they never met.
