Knew someone who perished?: No

Personally I didn’t know anyone who perished in the attacks of 9-11-01, but they were part of my family…..they were all my brothers and sisters…for we come from one family…the family of mankind. Where was I? I was driving to work and thinking to myself as I listened to the commentary that it must be some sort of “War of the Worlds” kind of gag. It couldn’t be real. when I got to work…there was no power. I worked in a nursing home and there was no power. We had no connection to the outside world…and I kept thinking it was straight out of the movie “Red Dawn” and we were being invaded. All we had was a battery powered radio and we listened as reports came in about the towers collapsing and the pentagon being hit and the evacuation of all major buildings. Fear was a big factor, but then….the lights came back on, and so did the televisions….the first site i saw as I turned to the tv, was that of a video showing something hanging out the window of one of the towers…and then it the camera followed the object down I realized the object had legs, and arms…Dear God I thought they’re jumping. It is an image I carry with me everyday. When I think that my life is going hard, and I can’t take the stress anymore…I think of those people in those towers who knew there was no way out and they were going to die…and I have a new spirit that everything is going to be alright. So on this one year anniversary I want to quote an old classmate that died in a accident when she was in 9th grade…”Never give up, Never give in…You can can win”

The persons responsible for this horrendous act will find their judgement wether on this earth or not…Judgement will occur.
