LEST WE FORGET



These friends said it very well.

Ancient One

Add your remembrance of this day in the comments.

  1. My daughter called to tell me about a plane hitting one of the WTC buildings. I quickly turned on the television and together we watched as the second plane hit. My daughter and I could have been in each other's arms instead of miles apart as we wept together that day.

  2. I spent the day painting my house. They closed school early and the kids were helping me. We listened to the radio and didn't turn on the television news until that night.

    There were so many graphic images on tv that I turned it off after 5 minutes and snuck upstairs to watch it by myself.

    I pray we will never have to suffer such great loss again but I'm a realist and I know we are a hated and reviled culture to others.

  3. I was picking my daughter up from school and people were saying something about a plane crashing into one of the towers. I didn't really understand what they were saying until I got home and saw the tv coverage.

    My daughter asked me if it was a volcano. It really took a while to sink in. :(

  4. I was just writing on Joey's blog about this...I lived in NYC and although (thank God) I didn't lose anyone, it was just so sad. I remember driving across the bridge from Washington to Oregon, and seeing the state and American flags at half mast, and it was just the saddest thing I had ever seen.

  6. I was getting ready to go to work when I heard them announce it on the news. It was like everything stopped when I got to work we all gathered around the t.v. and were shocked at what was unfolding. The images still bring me to tears.

  7. You know, I wanted to write so much more about that terrible day which also plunged me into a terrible depression, and brought back memories of World War II as a child, about seeing people blown to bits, being buried alive, and much more. But I decided to keep it simple. I prayed for the victims and their families, and prayed for our country, and prayed that peace would finally come to our world. Oh, will it ever come, you think?

    Thank you for the link. God bless the United States of America!

  8. I was at my daughter's school paying the tuition, when we heard the news over the office radio. I couldn't believe it until I came home and watched the news.

    Because I live near the airport, I'll never forget the sadness I felt for the victims and their families whenever I heard or saw a plane overhead.

  9. I was at work going to get a patient when I realized everyone in the waiting room was silent and staring and crying. I watched for a moment in disbelief and then ran back to my office to call my brother in NYC. I finally got through after about 30 minutes and he was shaken but OK. Thank God. He saw the second plane hit while he was out in the street trying to figure out what was happening, where to go and what to do. He was in shock. It not only changed him, but it changed so many lives in just an instant.
    Hate is never the answer... Ever, it only causes hurt. Hate brings more wars and killing, more families loosing loved ones, etc... If we could only see we are all brothers and sisters of the human race.... There has been too much bloodshed over hatred. It's time to remember the lives of all lost to the hands of hate and find the common ground of forgiveness and love. We are all One Family on this home called earth. So yes we must never forget 9-11, WWI, WWII, etc... Empires have been being destroyed for centuries over greed and hate... it's time to stop the old songs of hate and start a new song of Hope, Love, Forgiveness and Peace... a New Beginning. Healing and Blessing to all. Love and Light, Nina P.
