September is here and we are remembering
the worst tragedy that ever struck our
Nation, a Nation where we thought - we were
safe. What were you doing on that fatal day?
I think that what ever any of us was doing we
will never forget. Just think about that.
It was September 11 of 2001. Everybody was
going about their business, when about 8:45 A.M.
everything exploded at once. Nobody expected
this tregedy to come. I was coming from a doctor's
visit. I stopped at my house to fix myself something
to eat before I went to work.
I turned on the TV. All I could see was fire, smoke
and people running everywhere. I first thought it
was a movie, when I heard the broadcaster say
that they were live in New York City. I called my
husband and we both watched how the twin towers
came crumbling down. We couldn't believe our eyes
of all the horror we saw. All the channels were
breaking the news.
The terrorists crashed two planes and thousands of
our people died. some of the people didn't even know
what hit them. It was better like that. It was better that
they go to heaven and not to hell instead.
Another plane was headed for the Nerve Center of this
Country, but never made it there. The passengers in
that plane knew, that soon they would meet DEATH.
They decided to fight the terrorists and heroes they
became, when flight 91 went down. In all the planes,
the terrorists died, but to their people - it's no loss.
We all know that they died for the cause...
