September 11

I watch a little poll on the news where they were stopping people on the street. (some big city like LA or something) asking everyone what was the year that 9/11 attacks happened. probably 10 did not know. I understand that it was edited to look as if no one remembered the day. But I do. I remember where I was what I was doing how I was feeling.

I was cleaning my house on Hoffman street

Mark had just left to go to school at Gonzaga, my little girls (1 yrs. old 3 yrs. old) wanted to watch Clifford turned the Tv on and it was on all channels, I was going to start doing the dishes.

I stopped everything I was doing. I started worrying about the what if's of are we next. very worried. Thought it was time to start traveling to "Missoura" with my family.

it was 2001. I WILL NEVER FORGET

Where were you????

Oh I remember I was standing in my apt getting ready to start working and I got a call - from YOU telling me to turn on the TV. Complete horror ensued. Yes, it was 2001.

I was instant messaging my sister in law. I remember Dave Cotton and Dana.....someone on KHQ morning news covering the story. When it happened and the "breaking news" took over the TV, my sister in law typed "Bin Laden" - guess she knew what she was talking about. I was blissfully thinking/hoping it was just poor navigating on some dumb pilot's part.

I sat glued to it all day. I let J go to 1st grade, but almost kept him home.

I remember that it was 2001. I was out on a walk, wearing a white and blue striped sweater (too hot) in Rexburg. I was going through a break-up and I remember contrasting how I was feeling sorry for myself (it was my ex-boyfriends birthday). and this was going on on the other side of the nation. Jenni

I was running late for work that day (living in Oklahoma at the time) and had the Today Show or Good Morning America or something on while I was getting ready. They interrupted whatever they were saying to announce that a plane had crashed into the WTC, and we started getting live news footage of the building burning. At the time, everyone was thinking some dumb pilot had accidentally crashed. But as we were watching, another plane came in from the side of the screen and crashed into the other building. I remember the silence on TV as it began to dawn on everyone that this was no accident...

I finally made it in to work, but they sent us all back home less than an hour later. Nobody knew who was going to be next. Like you, Amy, I will never forget.
