Remembering 9/11

September 11th, 2001 will always me etched in my mind as well as every other person around the world. Scott and I were getting ready for work and turned the television on. We were shocked at what we saw, as was everyone else. I will never forget the feelings that I had that day and in the days to follow - from immense sadness to such pride in being an American. I cried every time the song "God Bless the USA" came on the radio. And today, 7 years later, it still brings tears to my eyes as I watched this video.

It is difficult to believe that so much time has passed -- it seems like yesterday -- since we heard those first unbelievable reports that a plane, then another plane, had crashed into the buildings of the World Trade Center. The anniversary of the terrorist attacks offers a time to remember, to reflect about this unforgettable moment in history, and to reconsider the effect that September 11 has had on our country and the world.

I stumbled onto your blog through the "next blog" button. Very good videos. Did you make them yourself or embed them from YouTube? It really is something that we will never forget. In his song, Alan Jackson asks where we were when all that happened. Being on the west coast, it was bright and early in the morning and I was getting ready and heading to work. It was tough to work as we listened to the radio reports all day. Stations here stopped playing songs the entire day as they took calls and fed us more info on the attacks.

Thanks for sharing the videos! My heart still breaks when watching those videos as if it were just yesterday. I hold Simon and pray that he never has to experience such devastation in his lifetime.
