Lest We Forget...

...the men and women who lost their lives in the attack on America, September 11, 2001.

~~~*~~~


I remember that day. We were at home awaiting out language teacher. We had been in Croatia just over a year and we were finally over the blunt of the culture shock.


We readied our books and things and decided to take the next 30 minutes to watch some Fox News. As we turned on the TV we were shocked into silence. Was this really happening? What does this mean for us. Where's the number to the embassy? We were scared and dismayed.


The door bell rang and shocked us back to reality. Svjetlana, our tutor was here and as quickly as she walked into the living room and seen what was going on tears began to stream down her face. She said it reminder her so much of the Bosnian wars of which she was part.


We all sat in silence and watched yet another plane hit the tower in real time. It almost felt
like the world, as we knew it, had been shaken and it had.



Anyway, this is where I was on September 11th and I'll never forget.

  2. For those of us who are older, this event went into our memories in the same manner that President Kennedy's assassination. We remember exactly where we were and what we were doing. :-(

  3. Wow. Thanks for sharing your story. I've shared a little part of mine on today's post. I'm sure it is hard for anyone to forget where they were when they learned about 9-11.
