Where were you? Do you remember?



Every year I’ll post this as a tribute to those who affected by September 11th.  Read the comments. I hope you’ll add your memories as others have done. l Where were you on this day years ago? Do you remember?

This post will stand alone to honor the memory of 9/11. It was the darkest day I can remember. I wish it hadn’t happened. If you read this post today, 3 days from now, 3 months or even 3 years, consider leaving a line or two answering both these questions.  I suspect, as a community of people, and individual members, we can recall together and comment individually on where we were when word came that the Twin Towers was under attack.

This post is in memory of 9/11 with the official memorial pictured above. This post is open to everyone who reads it to comment. Let’s respect each other’s memories and limit our comment to our own experience. I’ll start by posting my memory.

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center website is a great place to start to learn about the 9/11 memorial pictured in this post.

  1. I was sitting waiting to meet with an academic counselor at college. I glanced up at the tv and I couldn’t believe what I saw. I’ll never forget the image of the twin towers burning…

    I was in Jersey City laying on the couch in the living room watching tv. My phone rang and it was my cousin who phoned me. His words were “Guess what? An airplane just crashed into the WTC!” I didn’t believe him for a second and couldn’t even imagine why he’d make such a joke. He said “If you don’t believe, turn on the tv!” Lo and behold, before my eyes were plumes of smoke emanating from one of the towers. We were on the phone for some time and I think he had changed channels or stepped away from the tv. It was then my turn to deliver more breaking news that another one had crashed into the WTC. This time, my cousin was in disbelief. I said “look at the tv!” And we both fell into silence…

    I was living in Flagstaff, Arizona at the time, so by the time I got to work, the second plane had hit. A co-worker called in to tell us what was going on, so we turned the office TV on to see. Even across the country, it was shocking and very scary. There was a lot of hugging and crying that day.
