I won’t show photos of burning buildings, no video of towers collapsing; simply think about where you were on September 11, 2001.
Those lost are remembered on this anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Who could forget that day?
It was just after 6am on the west coast. I had turned on the morning news and taken a sip of my first cup of cup of coffee when all hell broke loose.
In real time, I watched the World Trade Center’s South Tower burn at 9:03 a.m., moments after being struck by United Airlines Flight 175.
I put down my coffee and ran upstairs to wake up my then twenty-year-old son.
We didn’t know what was happening–if similar attacks were planned for anywhere else – but we watched the unfolding of tragedy after tragedy.
Never forget the loss of life at the Twin Towers or the Pentagon or Flight 93, which crashed into a field in Pennsylvania during an attempt by the passengers and crew to regain control.
We will never forget.
