September 11th

I will never forget September 11th.

I remember as a child always hearing my parents and grandparents say they remember exactly where they were and exactly what they were doing when John F Kennedy was shot or when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. And they talked about their feelings when the news came in. 

I will always remember where I was and exactly and what I was doing when the news came in on September 11th. I will remember feeling that came with such tragic news that riveted not only me but our nation to the TV. 

I will always remember that first phone call from my loved ones who lived in New York telling me they were OK. I will remember the photos, the stories and the images that were portrayed over the next months. I will always remember the feeling of patriotism that seems to explode at the seams from everyone. United we stood.

But I will also remember the those who died. Our first responders who put their own lives on the line to help. The others who helped those in need and thought nothing of themselves.

God bless the victims and their families.

2977, a number I will never forget.

 I will always remember.
