Do You Remember?

I was in the break room at the dialysis center visiting with my friends when the first tower was hit. We were all watching tv. Then the second tower was hit. I left and went to my office.

As the events unfolded that morning a weird, indescribable feeling came upon me and I think everyone in America.

My husband was working at Ft. Stewart in Hinesville, Georgia. I was able to have a couple quick phone calls with him before they started locking the base down.

I remember feeling a little extra state of panic then those around me. Would Ft. Stewart be attacked too?

I think most Americans felt a state of panic that day, a state of insecurity. We live near a nuclear plant, a navel and an army base. Good targets in my opinion.

What in the world was happening to the greatest country in the world?

I think that was the beginning of many terrorist attacks on our country. I think these attacks are happening everyday in a very real but a desensitized way that we have all ignored. TV, our government, the schools...I believe these are just a few of the tools used to destroy America.

We all know that what's going on in our country today is wrong. The break down of the Christian home, the family....this government.

I hate what is happening to our country, But I am still thankful to live here. I'm thankful to our military and to everyone who sacrificed on 9/11.

This is a sad day in our country but it is also a day of Thankfulness. We do have a lot to be thankful for!

May God continue to bless us all.

Yes, I remember as well. It was so sad and surreal, almost as if seeing it on TV it was in another world.
Blessings to you and yours.

This is one day we'll always remember with clarity that is heart rending-We were in our 'crazy phase" the nightmare years then [We owned and operated a restaurant]for real.
I cannot describe the eery unbalanced, dark, unsettling feelings I had. We didn't know what we were actually dealing with so our minds and conversations went to every unimaginable scenario
we could think of. We were in S.E. Texas-yes there are huge targets there for sure. We all took turns leaving the restaurant to go fill our vehicles with gas..it was the one thing we could think of that we could solve-seems almost silly but there were long lines at gas stations and WHAT IF??? Basically that was our mindset-we didn't have much history of what to do in such a horrific event/threat. UNFORTUNATELY now we are allowing sooo many potentially shattering threats to be OH WELL~~~~~~~~ LET IT GO-so much political correctless-no it's not pc..it's insanity. mind numbing ~
