When asked where you were on SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, just 10 years ago, I can answer as if the moment were yesterday. I was at home cleaning my house as my almost 1 year old daughter played on the floor in the living room while Barney played on the television. My Telephone rang. I answered
My x-husband asked, “Are you watching television?”
ME: “Barney. Why?”
HIM: Turn on Channel 9 Now
Him: Just do it!! Now! It’s okay just do it.
I felt the hair on my arms stand up
Me: As I walked over grabbed the remote … “Are you okay? Oh My god! What is that? Where is that? Are you okay? Where is that? What am I watching. Is this real?”
I watched as the Airplane crashed into the 2nd Tower. In disbelief I had no idea what I was watching. As I watched I grabbed my daughter and held her close. I watched for another half hour and the phone rang. The school. My 9 yr old was in school and they wanted parents to pick up their children. I went to my son’s school to pick him up. I wanted him close to me.
OF all the footage I watched that day and the next week following every moment was full of tears and disbelief. My adoption Lawyer John had a brother who worked at the Pentagon and he died that day. There was a memorial service in his remembrance for the memory of his brother and all those lost in 9.11 in Naperville, Il. John was never the same after that.
Here’s a few popular songs dedicated to 9.11 Terrorist attack tragedy that really touch my heart. I wanted to share them with you.
