I was working at the Post Office when a customer came in and said a plane flew into one to the twin towers. I immediately felt in my heart that it was a terrorist attack. After I loaded my car with mail and started on my rural route, I heard on the radio about the second plane, then third. I listended all day to the events unfold on the radio trying not to cry. I did not see the t.v. until I got home from work. I remember everything about that day including what the sky looked like. If you'll remember, soon after 9-11 postal workers began wearing masks and gloves because of the anthrax in the mail. We were worried that was another terrorist attack. It was difficult to work with masks on, not to mention stressful as we were hearing about the postal workers in Washington who died after coming into contact with the anthrax.
As bad as it was, I never want to forget...we should never forget.

I was at home and was walking by the TV and noticed a plane slamming into a building, at first I wonder what show this was...then life as I knew it stood still...it was for real.

I was working here in California at a call center for AT&T wireless and we were handling millions of calls from people looking to see if we had any information as to whether or not their loved ones were still alive. It was the worst day of my life! But God still remains in control and our country remained united that day and prayers were uttered in one unified voice.

We should never forget any of the horrors gone on before...lest we forget and re-live them. So many good men and women have died in declared, and undeclared, wars...never forget; always honor their memory and thank the ones still alive.

I was driving to work. I had no idea what was happening until I turned on the radio. And then the rest of the morning unfolded and I was horrified at the news reports. I did not see any images until I went to my grandparents house on my lunch to turn on their tv. I cried and cried. I was living on the west coast and so was physically removed from the events, but my heart was breaking and the country was united in solidarity no matter where each of us lived.
It is a day I'll never ever forget. A day I still can't talk about or see images of without immediately having tears come to my eyes. Thanks for this post.
