Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

It started off like a normal day.. got up and went to work.
Then the phone rang with some frightening news…my mom called and asked if we had the news on…( you see.. I live in a small town..where little news is big I just figured that there was a bad fire or wreck)…and since we’re s’pose to listen to piped in music.. i said” no.. we dont have the news on.”

She then said ” planes just crashed into the Twin Towers!”
I’m went ” Oh my God!!”… I told her thanks for calling and letting me know.. we told each other that we loved one another and hung up.

I then went and told the two other people who were at work at that time..and they freaked out.

I went next door to the motel to watch T.V. and see it for myself.. I caught one of the towers falling.. if it was ‘live’ or a re*play… I dont know.

I then spent the rest of the day listening to the days events unfold with my co*workers.

It is a day that none of us will ever forget.

God bless those who were lost , and those who lost loved ones on 9/11.

God bless America.
