So tell me, do you remember where you were on 9/11/2001? I do! I was at home getting ready for my long ride to work and I was watching Channel 3 News when I sat down on the couch to put my shoes on when I saw the second plane fly into the second building. At first I thought it was a movie, but I checked the channel and it wasn’t. I called work and asked my boss’s wife if she saw and I told her to put on the TV, and that I was going to be late. When I drove there it was scary. For one there wasn’t a plane in the sky! I had to drive past O’Hare Airport, I worked close by and everything was grounded. Traffic went slow going by the airport. I wanted to cry, but couldn’t. I was scared and shaken! I just wanted to go home and be with my husband. No one could believe what was happening. I know I couldn’t! Both hubby and I were glued to the television for weeks and our home was quiet. We held each other tight as we slept. When I went to work I kept looking towards the sky and even when I left my home or sat on the front porch. I just sat in front of that television for hours saying prayers for anyone in the planes, buildings, on the ground, and for all the people helping. I kept praying for them to find more people, but all we saw were the images playing over and over again on every channel people running for their lives covered in a thick layer of white dust. The dust took hours to settle to learn the total damage and that was just 2 of the planes that cause the 2 towers to collapse. That night we learned about what had happened thus far & about the heroes that were saving an untold number of people by forcing through the cockpit doors and stopping another terrorist attack. This cost everyone of these passengers their lives. There was also the other plane that hit the Pentagon. By the end of the night 2 towers had collapsed, and they would be searching for days for anyone alive, then bodies. We lost 2,996 people that day, over 6,000 people were injured, and more than $10 billion dollars in damages of infrastructure. As Americans watched and flags flew on our houses and cars everyone had changed that day and life was no longer as we knew it. People & dogs volunteering and donating from every state. People driving in to try and help to find others and teach us how to protect ourselves God forbid something else should happen. Until this day I shutter at the thought of it. While we watched TV I wanted to do something myself so I crocheted a flag and matching pillow and it made me feel better and my husband donated money to our Red Cross and that made him feel as though we helped too. After I was done I felt better and every year I bring out what I made. (see below)
Don’t forget to follow everyone! Bye y’all! See ya next time!
