    I was a teacher in the Washington DC area. I went home to grab a cup of coffee since I didn’t have a 2nd hour class and saw the news. I went back to teach students who’s parents work at the Pentagon not knowing if they were alive or dead…It was a heartrending day!

    I remember. Thinking of all the families and friends who’s lives were so changed by this tragic event.

    I was teaching–we herd bits and pieces as parents brought in their children. It’s a day of sorrow but it pulled our nation together in a most beautiful way. We will NEVER forget!

    I was asleep and awakened by a panicked phone call from a friend that said “Turn on your TV. NOW”. I will never forget those words.

    Sometimes it’s hard to believe that it was only 12 years ago. It seems like it was much more recent than that…

    I don’t think I ever experienced so many different emotions in one day and will truly never forget.

    I was living in Maryland and my Step-Mom was in DC working, I remember the silence that day, as all aircrafts were grounded and all we heard was the jets flying over every now and then. I remember the call from my little brother freaking out that my step-mother was stuck downtown because the metros were having issues. I remember the terror, the sadness, the fright, I remember it all..

    A dozen years later and it hits me like a ton of bricks today. It didn’t hit me this hard last year but today, it’s difficult.

    I was in Brooklyn waiting for my husband and MIL to come home after being 3 blocks away from the towers. I had just quit my job 7 months prior and my former office was directly across the street from the WTC.

    I wrote a post touching the surface about some of my feelings about that day but I couldn’t express what it was like in NYC during those initial days after 9/11. It’s still difficult for me to watch my wedding video from May 2000 because the towers are prominently featured.

    I remember. I’m sad but deeply grateful.

    I was actually on a flight with my parents, heading back home to England for a vacation. When we got to our bed & breakfast, the owner told us what happened and we turned on our TVs to see the incomprehensible images. Hard to believe that it has been 12 years already.

    I was driving from work, to my doctors office and heard everything on the radio. I kept pinching myself over and over because I truly thought I was stuck in a bad dream.

    I had a one year old and was pregnant with my second child. I was sleeping in when my hubby barged in waking me up saying we were bombed by a plane and come check out the news, I was in front of the tv just before the second plane hit the towers and I was in complete shock, flabbergasted! …I WILL NEVER FORGET, It changed us, our country, the people….forever.

    It’s been a dozen years and I still get emotional.

  • Kathy @ CountingToTen September 12, 2013

    I had literally just put my sister on a plane and then heard about the crashes on the radio driving home! She was flying to Phoenix and got grounded in Tennessee! I will always remember that day.

  • Karen September 12, 2013

    I think this event is etched in everyone old enough to remember all over the world

    I will never forget that day. I was at home doing childcare when one of my daycare parents called me and told me that I needed to go into the other room and turn the TV on. I did, and I watched the second plane hit the tower and my heart dropped to the ground and I put my head in my hands and bawled my eyes out. I called my husband and told him that about what was happening and told him that he needed to turn the TV and we stayed on the phone with each other for almost an hour. I think I cried the biggest part of that day. I could not wait for my daughter to get home from school and my Husband to get home from work that day so that I could put my arms around both of them and tell them both how much I loved them.
