Tomorrow marks a sad anniversary in our Nation’s history. I will never forget where I was when the planes hit the World Trade Center. I was making photocopies of something (something to do with engineering). I came back to my desk and remember them talking about the planes hitting the buildings and it looked like Terrorism. I remember being in a daze that day and not even that day but that week. I remember all the radios that were banned coming on and us listening to the coverage and then going to the TVs to watch the coverage. I also think about the fear that gripped me that day – thinking what the heck is going on – especially after the White House and Capital emptied out.
I also think of how businesses shut down that day to allow the employees time to digest what just happened. I will not forget…I had a distant cousin in those buildings – I remember getting called within a couple days asking about a woman from Lee’s Summit – I didn’t know her but out of curiousity I asked where she was born Beaver Crossing, NE – the exact place I was born.
We shall never forget the lives lost
We shall never forget the bravery shown that day
We shall never forget the price that our soldiers are paying today
I will never forget the unity of our nation that day and the days following…
