I'm sure we all have a memory of where we were when we heard.  When we saw it.  

It seems as though when the years go by that it becomes more of a distant memory, something that someday young people will only know by us telling them our memories.

For me, the days after 9/11 are a bit of a blur because we found out on 9/12 that my Grandfather had passed away, in his chair with the TV on.  The general thinking is that he had a heart attack while watching the coverage.  Just one of probably many others like that around the country.  

At the last office I worked at, I got to speak to a lady that moved here a couple of years after the attack.  She was in the South tower when the North tower was hit.  What she described is something that can only be described by her words, not by anything we've ever seen on TV footage.  I found out recently that she passed away last year, complications from breathing the air at Ground Zero.

On this day we remember all of those lost in the terrible attack and the brave first responders from all places that came to help and continue to struggle today...


  1. my husband was on a conference call with a whole group of lawyers as it happened. they all died.

  2. I will never forget-what a terrifying and sad day

  3. I think for all of us old enough to remember it, we feel the same sense of terror and helplessness as we did that day each time we think about it.

  4. “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
    - Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl

  5. That is so sad and tragic about your grandfather. It certainly shocking news, to say the least.

  6. My daughter was in prep school. Another student's father had breakfast there and walked out. The first plane hit.
