Tomorrow is the 7th anniversary of 9/11. Probably America’s darkest day.
I remember waking up and my wife had the news on. I couldn’t beleive my eyes! Black smoke pouring skyward out of the South Tower of the World Trade Center!!
At first I thought she was watching a movie but then the news anchorman was saying that a commercial aircraft had crashed into it. Horrible!! I went to shave when my wife yelled "Look At This!!!" That was when the second plane smashed almost all the way through the North Tower.
I was late for work that day as I watched in horror as first one and then the other tower collapsed! I drove to work like a zombie. None of us got any work done that day. We watched TV all day listening and watching the horror stories of people who had been trapped on the upper floors, firefighters still in the buildings when they came down and this!!!
It has taken me awhile to sort of get over that day but I will NEVER forget.
There were uplifting moments….
But many more tragic ones
I remember seeing an unforgetable interview with a 59 year old survivor. He was covered in whitish and grey ash. The interviewer remarked that he looked very uncomfortable and he said, "Physicaly I’m OK, but emotionally?? I know that this ash is bone and flesh."
I hope that we never forget that day.
Tonight, an appropriate song by Alan Jackson. Isn’t This the perfect song???????
Just one question? Where Were You That Day??? Tell me, and us, your story…..
