9/11: The 10th Anniversary

To quote Alan Jackson, "Where were you when the world stopped turning?" I like how everyone shares where they were and what they were doing on this day in 2001. I was 21, at school, sleeping like much of the west coast was still. I remember my roommate waking me up and thinking that it was an elaborate joke. Then when the reality of the situation set in, I was afraid. I wondered to what extent the terrorist attacks would continue that day. I wondered what would happen to our country.

In honor of those who died, here is a link to the complete list of casualties from 9/11. It includes their names, ages, hometowns, and maybe a little about them. It is about 200 pages long.

Sad indeed. I was on the road that day--at the morning meeting I was attending, no one could focus so it was just ended.

I had gone to bed after working the night shift and didn't find out until after 5 pm that day when I woke up. I felt like I was truly the last person to know. And I felt bad for people who had to "catch me up" on all this horrible news. They would cry again, and the fear would set it....and I was just quiet with shock.

I did a post on this too. Tears came down as we watched some of the memorial on TV. Uh so sad.

It is nice of you to share that link. I have bookmarked that link so that many people come to know about these and try atleast their very small effort to pass the message and save the nation.

This event has marked up on every country's history, regardless if they were affected by the said event or not. On my own viewpoint, this is one of the worst terrorism that has ever come upon us.
