I am sitting here right now remembering what I was doing on 9/11 in the year 2001. I had just been getting out of bed to get ready for work at that time.
I received a call from a friend who was in a prayer group I was involved with at the time.
"Guess what?" He said. Then he proceeded to tell me that the Towers in New York were blown up. I was like...what?!
Probably the same reaction most Americans had at that time. This was especially something that hit a little bit home for me in that I lived in New York at one time in my life.
Even though I was back in my home town in Wisconsin, I felt such grief at that time. I was glad to find out that no one I knew from there was hurt though.
I am ashamed to admit though it did take me awhile to call and find out. (It was not close friends or family just people I lived with while I was there.) I probably just was afraid to find out the truth.
By the time I did call I was glad they were all okay, especially the one that I knew had worked on Wall St. That was a relief.
I had also knew a neighbor of mine (in Wisconsin) that knew some people from New York. He had some relatives who were from there. He wanted to find out if they were okay. He seemed quite upset about it.
Anyway, all I wanted to say about this is that America will never forget that day. And shouldn't!
