In Remembrance of 9/11

I was at work when the news came in of a plane that hit one of the twin towers.  As I watched in horror another plane hit the other tower, it was apparent we were under attack.  The exact details are bit fuzzy but what I do remember to this day is how I felt.

When reports came in about another plane crashing into the Pentagon that horror turned into panic.  My ex-husband, the father of my daughter worked at the Pentagon.  Later that day I found out he was TDY and wasn’t in the Pentagon when the plane hit.

I didn’t know those who lost their lives on September 11.  But I grieved just like everyone in America and throughout the world.  So as we go throughout our day let’s not forget those innocent lives that were lost and the First Responders that risk their lives to save those who were.  They are the true heroes.
