How are You Remembering 911?

My husband was scheduled to be on American Flight 11 on that fateful day. By Grace of God, and through a series of fortunate events, his plans changed.

You can read my true story here:

Where were you? How do you remember the events of that day?

  • I had just gotten to work and saw the news footage on about the first tower being hit. Sat to get an update on what had gone on and saw the second tower hit and then watched them both fall.


    I didnt lose anyone that day, I didnt have military friends or family who left to go to war. So I dont mourn or sit and remember or grieve for the events that happened on that(or any tragic event anniversary for that matter). My life went on and I do my best to be a good person, thats the best way I can honor the lost.

  • Was in Germany at the time. Sitting in a army base Hotel. Watching it on tv. How do I remember it? Being scared. What is the army going to do to protect us over here. That is what I was thinking.

  • I know several people who were either supposed to be on one of those planes and didn't make it for some reason, or worked at the pentagon and didn't go to work that day. My heart goes out to the families who did lose loved ones on that day.

  • Wow.. what a neat story.
    I was home.. thousands of miles away from it and very pregnant. I watched with the rest of the world, glued... with hopes and prayers.
    The next day I gave birth to my son. I couldn't help but wonder how many took their last breaths when mine took his first.

  • I was at work, and was on a comp. I had tears running down my face and my cell phone ringing off the hook. Today has been a very humble day, for the fear that went to my core on that day to today of all the lives that ended. I just hope that we as a nation will never go through this again.

  • Asleep alone in my moms house. I had just graduated a few months before. My HS friend called me screaming we were under attack. I turned on the tv and the second plane hit. I never felt more alone than that day. When my mom, dad and sister came home, we lit a circle of candles around our flag pole with the flag lowerd to half mass. Today I watched youtube tributes and did the silence on FB. I also posted stuff on FB.
