Have been watching the 9/11 footage this morning and like most disasters that happen during your lifetime, I remember exactly where I was and how I was feeling.
Like most people I didn't see the first plane go into tower 1, only saw footage after. However I did see the second plane go into tower two ......nothing like reality TV...
...when I remember that day in September 2001...I remember it in slow motion...everything was happening way to fast for me to absorb!
We lived in Dayton Ohio in 2001 and my husband was working from home...my son Kevin was there..... but still asleep. I remember that we didn't wake him up but he was right there with us glued to the TV wondering(hoping maybe ) that what we were watching was not reality, but some sick joke!
After the Pentagon was hit by another plane ....we heard fighter jets above our heads...the house trembled from the jets breaking the sound barrier and the noise was deafening...I honestly thought that we were being attacked right there in Dayton Ohio.
A little while later we heard that a plane had crashed in a Pennsylvania field. Not putting events together. like everyone else , just taking in the physiological terror of all the events of that day was way to much !
A couple of years after 9/11, I was searching for something on the computer and I came across the flight routes of those 4 airplanes that hit us that day.
As I was starring at the computer screen I noticed that the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania had flown into Ohio for a while before turning around and crashing in Pennsylvania. My thoughts went back to that day in 2001 and I slowly realized that those jets flying above our house might have had a mission much more important then what I had thought!
