It's so so hard to comprehend that 10 years ago, the tragedy of 9/11 happened. I still remember it like it was yesterday - I was in my Biology Honors class...it was time for the "morning announcements." We turned it on the wrong tv station (by accident) and saw the second plane hitting the trade center. We didn't know what was going on - was it real? Was it a tv show? We really thought, at first, that it was just some show that was on.
One of the teachers from a neighboring classroom ran in - saying, "did you just see that??!" And then the rest is history... It was such a bizarre day. There were so many peers (like myself) who had family in New York...of course, none of the phone calls were going through. I think, that day, we were in lock down. It was honestly such a blur of a day - I don't remember much.
My heart goes out to all of the lost, all of those who had someone leave them too soon - for such an unfair reason. My heart goes out to all of the firefighters, EMT, people helping, etc. that now have those memories imprinted in their brain.
"Never forget" is what we so often hear. No one will ever forget what happened - especially how it made them feel, who they were with, where they were, etc. when it happened. That is one memory that will never be erased.
Praying for all involved. Especially all of you who might have been some how affected.
God Bless the USA. <3
