9/11 changed me forever

I had just come back from walking my children to school and turned on my computer.  The home page was showing the first plane crash.

After watching the news and realizing that our country was under attack, I truly felt different and have not felt like my old self since.

I think about it when I go to a stadium, a mall, amusement parks, the aquarium, theaters, concerts, a big city, etc.   What about our water supply, our food, our schools....    I remember feeling like we'd never be able to go anywhere safely again.

Of course I'm not in panic mode anymore but I still do think of it.  We're all very vulnerable and fragile...that day proved it.

I'd like to hear your thoughts.

  1. 9/11 not only changes the individual it change the world. I still remember the phone from my sister telling me to switch on the TV; I couldn't believe what I was seeing it was like watching a move.

    Then we had 7/7 here in the UK, I was at work when the client I was with got a phone from his daughter telling him she was ok. Ok what’s wrong he ask her, she told him we then switch on the TV were the first went off on the bus my heart sank my legs turn to jelly I remember shouting out "oh my god my daughter" I got my phone and start dialling both of them but I couldn’t get then the network was jam a moment later my phone bleep it was message from my daughters. One didn’t go work that and the other misses her train so she misses that bus. I remember saying thank you god over and over. After my relief I was sad for all the people that last there lives and for their family. Another sad thing was it was our own British born citizen did this to us, how sad is that!!!!

  2. It definitely underscores the frailty of life. I think everyone who was alive on that day lost a piece of themselves when the twin towers and those planes went down.

  3. I often think of that very sad day too. My children and I were in the kitchen having breakfast and watching Barnie on tv. My close friend called and asked if I had the tv on and explained what had just happened. I could hear the panic and desperation in her voice so I quickly change the station and that was when the second attack happened right before my very eyes. I started to cry for all of those people and their family. I then realized my two small little girls were looking at me and wondering what was wrong. I tried to explain the best that I could all the while reassuring them that we were safe, but I wished someone could had reassured me. I think a small piece of uncertainty is still with me too. Maybe with all of us.

  4. I too remeber exactly where I was when 9/11 happened. It is something that no one will ever forget.
