Remembering 9/11/01

It has been fifteen years since the twin towers called the World Trade Center have collapsed because of two planes hit the twin towers at full force under command of terrorists who wanted to rock the entire nation with fear and power.  Killing so many people in the towers and on the planes as killing some of those on the ground rescuing the trapped people in the towers has definitely rocked the nation.  I could not even fathom someone being that evil to kill so many people at one time just to show that others do not like our country, our America.  Even though I remember watching the first plane hit the World Trade Center on the news that was airing the happenings in New York  City I could not stay home all day due to the fact that I had an appointment at 10 AM.  I had to go on with my business, with my life, my day.  My appointment was down the street from my apartment and it won’t take me long to get there and back home.

After my appointment, leaving the building, I heard vehicle radios on the news about the planes hitting the twin towers.  Before I left I saw the first plane hit one of the towers and I did think it was just a freak accident of a plane losing control but after my appointment i heard of a second plane hitting the other twin tower of the World Trade Center.  My heart could not believe it.  I did not want to believe it.  I still had to go one with my day.  A friend and neighbor of the building picked up from my appointment and we went to lunch at our neighborhood to have time together.  My friend’s car radio was on the news about the terrorist attack to the towers killing a lot of people.  I believe that nothing else was on the minds of the people in my life that day, week, and now after fifteen years, it is still being talked about every September.

Even this event that happened fifteen years ago and it was a very tragic, horrible, and painful event that rocked the nation, we are all moving forward in our lives one way or another.  My heart goes out to the loved ones who have lost family members and friends that day on 9/11/01 and I will not stop praying for everyone nor will I forget what happened that day in my own life.  I believe that this terrorist attack has taken more than lives that one day.  I am sad.  I am reminded every year at this time and day what happened and I still want answers to such evil minds.  This day fifteen years ago has taken a part of me that will never be found again.
