We Remember, 8 Years Later | 9-11-01


I can still remember the day it happened. It feels like it happened yesterday.

Although I was sleeping during this horrible tragedy, I was awoken by my husband who called to tell me to watch the news.

I asked him, “What channel?” He then said, “Any channel”. I said, “Why do you want me to watch the news”? He said, “You’ll see…I’ll stay on the phone when you watch what’s going on.”

I turned on the tv and I turned to Fox News (b/c it’s my favorite news channel) and I could not believe my eyes.  My jaw dropped and I was quiet.  It was so surreal.  I felt like I was watching a movie.

I said, “Holy shit, what the hell is happening?”

My husband said relax and take it easy, just call your sister and make sure she’s ok and keep the baby busy.

So I called my sister and she said she was fine but startled.  She told me everyone at the office was going to be sent home early.

After we spoke for a mere few seconds, I called my mom and we both cried.  We couldn’t believe what was happening. We spoke until the phone call was dropped.

I got really scared after that.

I was even more scared after hearing that two other planes crashed into the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania.

What a tragedy.

To this day, I still can’t believe the Twin Towers are gone.

I don’t know anyone that died (Thank God) but I do know a few people that knew others that died.

I just hope that September 11th won’t ever happened again.

God bless America.
