Remembering that September Morning

September 11th, 2001 was a horrible day for the United States. I was at work when it happened. I got a call from my son. He was home alone watching the tragedy unfold on television. 

The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Additional people died of 9/11-related cancer and respiratory diseases in the months and years following the attacks.

Alan Jackson, a country singer, wrote a song about that horrible day, titled Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning. Here is a video of that day…. A beautiful song and tribute to those lives lost.

Another video that shows graphic images and reminders of how we should all feel thankful to be alive. I am so sorry for those of you who lost loved ones that horrible day.

  1. As I said before, we in Indonesia also talked about and prayed for those who experienced the unfortunate event. We should remember them, and learn a lot from the tragedy.

    When the tragedy happened, I was in the office and was very surprised to see the breaking news on TV. Everyone barely worked that day.

  2. I keep telling myself (like many other things in life) that the passage of time in fact will make this less. Every single time 9/11 rolls around I cry.

    I do not beleive that this is the only horrifying event. There have been so many in just my lifetime. Rather, that this tragedy like so many others could have been avoided.
