On this 13th anniversary of 9/11 Americans are reflecting on the incredible loss we suffered that day. It’s hard to believe it has already been 13 years. A day Americans and many around the world will never forget.
Living in the Southwest and the time being 3 hours earlier than the East Coast where the terrible tragedies unfolded, I was still asleep when the planes hit the Twin Towers. As my husband works evenings, I was being very quiet getting ready for work that morning. No tv, no radio, no idea what had happened. It was my one year employee anniversary at the company I was working for. While driving to work that morning I was listening to the radio and trying to figure out what was going on. I couldn’t believe what was being reported. It didn’t seem real. Arriving at the office, there were people in the conference room watching the news and I could see what I had been hearing on the radio. It still didn’t seem real. How could two jets fly direct into the Twin Towers? Then to hear it being reported that another jet had flown into the Pentagon and a fourth jet had crashed in Pennsylvania. A day I will never forget…..
