I think it was the shock of all times

I was teaching preschool.  We weren't allowed to have tv, or radio on in the classrooms unless it was child related.  We had no clue what was going on until lunch time when a parent came running into the the school yelling "THE TWIN TOWERS ARE GONE!"  It was one hell of a day.  After work, I sat in front of the tv just watching everything that had happened.  I was scared, confused, and very upset.  

The last time I was in NYC I visited ground zero.  It was still under construction.  I never saw the towers in person before 9/11.  As I stood at ground zero, I just had this errie feeling. It was strange.  I can't explain it.  Even if you didn't know what happened, you knew it was tragic.  It's a feeling that stayed with me even after I got home.

Shock, horror, atrocity, disbelief, sadness.

It is like the killing of JFK only different of course but still, one of those times when you remember forever exactly where you were and what you did over the next day, week, months, even years.

I too remember virtually every minute of that day, from the moment someone came into my office and told me a plane had crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center in New York, and that people were gathering in the conference room to watch it on TV, so I went there...And then the second plane hit - and I knew, and I guess everybody else did  as well - this wasn't an accident!

A friend of mine reminded me yesterday of the phone call I made to him, saying "...Today the world has changed", and that I was right! And I know I was - think of the tremendous changes that have taken place since then, and continue to do so...

Sharing strengthens relationships and country love.

It was truly sickening and truly so unreal, I cannot guess what pain is still being inflicted on those involved and those who miraculously survived.

9/11 is one of the saddest days in our nation's history. I myself was in school when it happened. I found out about the Pentagon first, then about the towers falling down. I wish that day had been a been dream, instead.
