Thinking of 9/11

I was not born at the time this happened but Mom remembers the moment this happened vividly. Dad had been in the hospital and he had just come home two days earlier. They were having breakfast and watching Good Morning America before going to Dad's follow up doctor visit. The people at GMA switched to show that something had happened to one of the towers. They were showing the smoking hole in the tower and reporting that they had heard that a plane had struck the tower when the second one came in. It was so unbelievable. The towers collapsed while mom and dad were at the doctor visit. They heard about it as soon as they switched on the radio. They had never thought of that happening, also heard about the Pentagon and the United flight. Flights all over the country landed immediately. Families felt an intense need to know that other family members were okay even if they were not near New York or Washington D.C. Mom started worrying about my brother who works in downtown Chicago.

Ten years later the horror and sadness are just as vivid. The heroic efforts to save these people and later just to recover bodies, the families that suffered, the nation felt their pain. These people should never be forgotten. True American heroes all of them.
