We were living in Scottsdale, AZ at the time, getting ready for work. When the 2nd plane hit my blood ran cold and I could barely breathe - my husband was supposed to be in that tower for a business meeting but had rescheduled.

I’m sure it took a lot of restraint on your part not to react.

The next Monday I dropped my youngest son off to go to basic training.
He had signed up several months earlier. He scored so high on his entrance exam the USAF offered college for a eight year stint. Wasn’t interested wanted to jump out of perfectly good airplanes. Was on USAF CCT.

Oh wow I feel REAL OLD!! I had to get out all my fingers and toes. Being 21 now shoot I was a baby. 😉
I was sleeping my sister in law kept knocking on the door waking me up. I was so wore out I had stay up until 5 or 6am. She wouldn't stop knock on the door. Finally I got up to throw her in the well. 🤣 I couldn't wake up to understand what she was talking about. I just kept looking at her like she lost her mind. 🤯🤪 After waking up I watch it on tv in total disbelief and shock. This was my senior year of high school.
Many years late I have been by the 911 memorial. Even to this day its hard for me to totally understand and comprehend the level of everything. I've seen it on tv but without being there or personally experiences it, its truely hard to really grasp how it has really affected people lifes. I have lost love one but that's definitely different. Some people were never even found. I can't even imagine how their familys and friends feel. 🙏🏽 most of us have gone on with our daily lifes not thinking much about it while peoples lives have been forever affected. 😥 not to mention our country as a whole.
