There’s no doubt everyone has their own personal memories of where they were on September 11, 2001 when they heard the news of planes hitting the World Trade Centers, the Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field. I was glued to the television the entire day watching it all unfold in disbelief.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since that fateful day. I visited New York earlier this year and visited Ground Zero. From the observation point, all you can really see is a construction site. The memorial wasn’t open yet. I will be back in NYC next year and plan to visit Ground Zero again and go see the memorial. This day is forever ingrained in my memory.
I’ve spent the last week or so watching all the various 9/11 specials on TV. It’s not easy footage to watch, but I can’t not watch. I’m fascinated by the stories of the survivors, and of the loved ones of those who didn’t make it. I am enthralled with seeing where they are now and how they’ve coped.
Please head over to Band Back Together for our 9/11 memorial to read the amazing stories posted there today. The terrorists tried to destroy a nation on September 11, 2001. All they did was succeed in bringing a nation together.
