Default Re: Remembering 9/11

Hubby and I were on vacation at Disney World on 9/11. Specifically, we were at Epcot waiting for the league of nations or whatever it's called to open. We overheard people getting calls and when we asked what was going on were told that a plane had crashed into the WTC. Initially thinking it was a tragic accident, we stopped for some lunch, still in Epcot. When we came out of the restaurant everyone was being herded to the front gates. The park was closed for the rest of the day and reopened the next day. We continued our vacation (what else do you do?) and drove home a couple of days later. I specifically remember on the ride home, even so soon after, many of the vehicles were waving the flag. Shortly after, of course, flags were manufactured specifically for vehicles. May we all join together to strive for an end to this kind of hatred throughout the world.

It gives me tingles just reading these posts. I can't believe it was eight years ago either. Amen to your last sentence, PM. The victims of 9/11 will never be forgotten.

Once again reviving this thread in memory of that day.

Warning: This includes 911 calls that are hard to listen to. I cried.

I don't think anybody who lived through the events of this day 9 years ago ever will.

Today, when we were in Detroit airport getting ready to board our plane, there were a few soldiers among the passengers, one in combat uniform. The airline agent announced that the soldiers would board first. She then asked that we give a round of applause for those in the military. It was quite moving.

Well - I'm a day late in posting this, but not a day late in remembering this day and how it changed our lives. Soda, that video that you posted is hard to watch, but still, I watched it anyway. You can't help but get all choked up.

And GL, they did almost the same thing in the airport last weekend when we had some service men and woman on one of my flights out to Colorado. Then, once airborne, we gave them another round of applause.

I can not believe that's the tragedy was 9 years ago!
At that time I came from the work and turned on the tv, I could not believe and understand what I saw there.

I watched a lot of the memorials and documentaries yesterday. Last year I worked all day on 9/11 and didn't get the chance to think about it too much. At least yesterday I felt like it was front and center in my mind most of the day.

Thought I'd bring this thread back up to remember all the victims and heroes of that awful day. As we remember the 10th Anniversary.
