I know this is a question that you hear all of the time, especially on 9/11 but I think it's a day that we all remember so vividly. Most people can tell you exactly where they were, what they were doing, who they were with. I will never forget that day as it is forever engraved in my mind.
I was at my in-law's house. I was pregnant with our first child. My husband, his dad and a family friend were all working on the roof. I remember watching the first plane hit and thinking it was a horrible accident. I remember going outside and telling the guys what had happened and they kind of shrugged me off and I went back in. After the second plane hit, I knew something was very wrong. I got really panicky and I called my Mom who was teaching at a Christian school nearby. She took the teenage students over to the church daycare next door to watch it all unfold. I remember the guys not believing me and we all sat in silence as we watched. I remember the headlines on ever station, "America Under Attack." For months after, I remember being in fear. Every time an airplane would be flying low I would get scared. I held my hubby a little tighter at night after that and made sure I told my family members how much I loved them.
I will never forget.
Where were you?
