I still remember what I was doing when I heard what happened on that awful morning. It was my first day back to work after being on vacation in NYC. I had flown back September 8th. I was driving to work listening to the radio when I heard them interrupt a song and say "The twin towers have been hit by two airplanes, our Nation is under attack." I didn't believe it, so I switched to a different station, that dreaded news was on there as well.
All day everyone at work was glued to the television. I went to Wal-Mart that evening to buy some groceries and there was an eery feeling. No music filled the store, but over the speakers was the news. It felt as if nothing would ever be the same after that day. I guess things haven't been the same since that day for our Nation. There are still men and women serving our country for the events that occurred on September 11th. So today I pay tribute to the people who lost their lives in the events of 9/11, their families that were left behind and to those who continue to serve our Country.

God Bless America.

Out of curiosity, where were you that day?

  1. I had just finished exercising, when I had turned on the TV to find news about the Twin Towers. Went to class that day (couldn't stop thinking about the morning's events), and kept going into the BYU Bookstore to watch the latest news. When the speakers came on for the National Anthem that day, everyone on campus was noticeably somber than usual.
    You're was a life changing day.
