9/11. 12 Years Ago.

12 years ago today I was in high school in the cafeteria and heard some comments going around about the World Trade Center, I thought maybe people were referring to the prior bombings. Got to my Biology class and my teacher was sitting there glued to the radio in disbelief. He didn’t care what was going on in class and we realistically didn’t know what to do.

I walked over to the faulty room with other students and saw as all the teachers and staff were staring into the TV watching what would go down as the craziest thing in our modern day American History to happen. They didnt even care we were in there as other days they always shoo us out of there. All of a sudden.. the 1st tower cumbled to the ground and was gone, Then the 2nd tower alittle bit after. It was sad as hell to see. Especially LIVE.

9/11. Never Forget.

  1. I remember that day. I hate to talk about it. I was working in Jersey and I was stuck on the GW bridge and I watched the whole thing. My mother used to work in Tower 2. I couldn’t find her for hours. I was in a panic. Never felt such a feeling of loss thinking my mother was gone. Luckily late that night I heard from her. I was thankful. I ended up being stuck in Jersey at an Amerisuite hotel. The Feds were blocking all access into NY. Two days later I made it back to NY and I was on the PATH train and I saw the aftermath. It felt post world war of some sort. It was surreal. I’ll never forget it. Life goes on and so do we. My experience wasn’t as up close and personal as yours but I felt a tremendous feeling of loss with all those that perished. To this day I don’t speak of 9/11. I rarely do, but it isn’t so bad anymore
