Just An Ordinary Morning? Turned Upside Down

Well, i went to work like a lot of others that day. i saw the buildings from my office window, and i turned around just as the second tower fell. they let us go home, it was moving in slow motion and everyone just quiet. i went home and worried about my fiance at the time getting home, and he did. he didnt work in the towers. he worked in a hospital just out side of manhatten.

I found out in days to come that a friend of mine, who had been in my wedding party had lost his life, he was a local fireman and ran in to help the others and never came out. they never found his body and around 700 people where at his memorial service. i dedicated a song book at my church to him.

Since then, i remember driving into the city to see the double lights they turned on that first nite, and my daughter and I went into see ground zero, oh 2-3 weeks if that long after it happened. i dont look at the pictures anymore.

i ask God to bless all those families hurt in that horrible tradgedy.

I too remember 9/11. What a horrific day. You're right everything was in slow motion. My h/b wanted to go to the Pentagon and take pictures so we did. It was hard to see. One of our customers almost was killed by inches. A security guard who from from where I live that I knew
who was in the towers somehow got out. Most of the guards were killed. Yes, God bless all those families that suffered such devastation...such lose. It was such a horrific event in our history that I will never forget as long as I live.

I reread what I wrote and I had said I don't look at the pics anymore? I don't need to they are embedded in my memory. Xoxo

We do not look at the pics either. You're right they are embedded in our minds.

God bless you! Everything happens for a reason, always remember that. And now because of 9/11 our country is stronger, has a better defense program, and a lot of things have been learned. Again, God be with you.

My heart is sad ...I ask God to bless them too..so many loving Angels now! <br />
Holds you in the arms of my soul...........always........................
