9/11 in Tribute

I can’t talk or blog about 9/11 without becoming emotional. You see, on September 11, 2001, I worked in the accounting department of an upscale retail chain in lower Manhattan, just a stone’s throw from the World Trade Center. My husband worked on Wall Street. We both witnessed all of the tragic events of that day.

I’ll never forget hearing the first plane hit and seeing the second. I won’t forget seeing the towers fall or the panic and pit in my stomach feeling of not being able to find my husband for six hours. I’ll always remember all of the people who, like me, took a five hour walk from lower Manhattan to Queens after all public transportation shut down. I’ll especially always treasure the minute my husband walked into our tiny apartment covered from head to toe in dust from the fallen towers, but otherwise OK.  I, we, will always wake up on 9/11 thankful we’re alive but with our thoughts towards those who aren’t.

BlogTalkRadio is remembering today as well. I invite you to listen in on one or all of the many 9/11 tributes on our network today.  (all times EDT)

    Deborah, thank you for sharing your experience about 9/11.

    Can you please send me an email? I have a couple of questions for you regarding what you had experienced there, but it’s a little too involved to post on a blog. You can get my email from the “comments” section of your blog’s admin panel. Thank you very much.
