I remember calling my husband at work to tell him what was going on. I don't know how best to remember the occasion other than with prayer, but I also remember the people and families of the OKC bombing too.
Home and cleaning the garage. I came up to get more coffee, saw what had happened and never got back down to finish. Ten years. How our lives have changed....I will never forget and I'll do the same thing I do every day. Pray for peace!
In my office. Receptionist walks in shortly before 9am and says she heard a small plane hit the WTC. I had a little 8" mini TV in my office so we turned it on, and within 2 minutes the second plane hit. From that point on, my office was packed with people, and I was giving nonstop phone and email updates to friends and family who's jobs didn't have access to TV or radio. I vividly remember my boss, who was National Guard, saying "This is Bin Laden" and I was like like...who's that?I still cry every single time I see the planes hit, or think of the people on those planes. God bless everyone who lost their lives that day.
I was home sick in bed watching Regis and Kelly. I have no plans other than say a prayer for those who can't.
I was working for the Federal Aviation Administration and was in my office. You can imagine the chaos that ensued once we heard about the planes. I spent the September 11, 2011 weekend with a very dear friend who is a commercial airline pilot. She has a whole different insight into what 9-11 was like. Ten years ago, she was the Captain of a flight waiting on the taxiway at Chicago-O'Hare, 3rd in line for takeoff, when Air Traffic Control told them to stay put. It was a most harrowing experience and, even 10 years later, she relives it all over again. We attended the "Concert to Honor" sponsored by the National Cathedral, talked a lot and cried a lot. I hope I was able to help her find some peace of mind.
