We will remember ...

... Of course, we will!

I think it's amazing that when this happened, my students were only toddlers. I was living in the Pi Phi house and watched the towers fall on my computer during my Technology in the Classroom class. Molly was living in Chicago at the time. There was no war. We could fly without security stress. Things were much different!

It seems like both a millions years ago, and just last week at the same time!


Where were all of you on September 11, 2001?

Pin It!

I started watching the re-play of the whole drama played in real time on MSNBC this morning. I actually got sick to my stomach, as it was exactly what I was doing seven years ago. What we know know that we didn't know then ... amazing!

I was in NYC, and it was a beautiful morning. I was in a great mood as I was getting ready to go to Fordham and listening to Howard Stern. That morning is still so clear in my mind that it's very hard for me to believe that it was 7 years ago. I see all those buttons, stickers, etc. that say Never Forget, and I think there's no way I'll ever forget it.

I was watching Good Morning America and watched it live. So, so sad.

I was living in San Francisco, and my boyfriend at the time came in to wake me up and said, "It's been a bad morning." That was certainly an understatement.

Justin & I were watching the Today Show and like everyone else, when the first plane hit we thought it was a terrible accident. Then the second plane hit and we were in total shock. Then Justin turned to me and said "I'm going to lose my job." He was laid off almost 2 months after the attacks. He worked for Boeing at the time. I remember having to come into work and how somber everything was. It was odd working at the newspaper. It was odd to drive into work and not see a plane in the sky. Life had suddenly become SO MUCH different.
