What a day of rememberance. I was on the net all morning that day because I couldn't believe what I was seeing. On MSNBC this morning they are replaying their ACTUAL BROADCAST they were doing on 9.11.01. It's surreal. David Gregory was just talking :( They even thought the PLO did it at one point.

However you were affected, and we all were...take a minute to remember the people and all the rescue workers. In DC and PA as well. Things are still not the same in NYC as we know. I so hope they finish the memorial within my lifetime.

In memory of Jerry Mario, firefighter

I,too, spent the day online. Happened to be in a game site chat room. Needless to say all games ceased and we bonded over our fears and concerns. We talked those home alone through it all and kept others without tv proximity up to date. It was a horrible situation, yet we became fast friends over it. That which does not kill us...makes us stronger they say...felt like superwoman that particular day. To all involved I send prayers and thanks ...may God bless us all.

Ironically enough, I was in an American History class when it happend. Our teacher turned on the TV in the classroom to the news, and I can just remember her crying so much, it just didn't seem real to me.

Living on Long Island it was very real for me. I will never forget that day. I did not lose anyone close to me, but everyone seems to know of someone.

A fireman I grew up with lost his life on that day. A co-worker lost her brother-in-law also a fireman. A girl on one of my softball teams lost her father. My niece's classmate lost her father. My sister's neighbor lost a best friend. It goes on and on....please keep them all in your prayers.

We Shall Never Forget. God bless them all. God Bless America.

I was actually on my way to a Naval Base for work that morning...of course the base closed and I went home to watch the news. My sister lives in NJ and my Brother-in-Law had an office across the street from the World Trade Center. Ironically, his office moved out of the World Trade Center after the first bombing. I remember that day so clearly- it seems like yesterday. My heart continues to go out to all those who lost loved ones that day and to all those rescue workers who have since passed or been diagnosed with a disorder due to their exposure that day. I hope and pray that my children and and my children's children are spared of ever having to live through such an event.

Thanks for your post. I moved out of NY two years ago and now live in Houston, TX. It is so weird not being in NY on this day. Thanks for urging people to remember so sadly some forget with time.

Thanks Karen for doing such a lovely post. I was at work when it happened and heard it on the radio. I got mom (Leesy) on messenger and made her turn on the tv. She fed me the news. Didn't see the footage until around noon after we closed the office early. I remember still being awake at 3AM staring at MSNBC in hopes there would be more survivors.

Thank you to our Police, Firefighters, and our military. "Some gave all, all gave some."

I was active duty assigned at the Pentagon that day. My office was a few blocks away. I remember watching the smoke and little bits of glitter that I realized where parts of the airplane falling outside my office window. Most of my division came to our office and the first thing we did was direct them to a phone and tell them to call home. It took me a couple of hours to track down my folks and I had to calm my mother down because she was in tears not knowing if I was alive or dead. My prayers go to the ones who lost their lives that day and the ones they left behind and those in uniform, military and civilian, who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. Thanks from an old retired NCO.

Let us NEVER forget
