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)

BlogTalkRadio – 9-11 Tribute Show

On September 11th, 2001 the lives of the American people were changed forever. 2996 Lives were lost that fateful day.

This year, on the 5th anniversary of what we have all come to know as 9/11, Blog Talk Radio and The Blue Doodle got together and paid tribute to the 2996 people lost on that day.

Alan Levy of Blog Talk Radio and Amy Domestico from The Blue Doodle hosted a night of readings that included personal tributes, poetry, and music, all dedicated to the victims of 9/11, and the people who risked their lives to help in the aftermath. Hero’s every single one of them, who deserve the highest honor we can give to them, and they, nor their heroic acts should never ever be forgotten.

We want to take this opportunity to thank the people involved…….

9-11 Tribute Show Update!!

Posted on behalf of BlueDoodle.com’s Amy Domestico:

WOW what a week it has been, a flurry of activity from all over the country trying to pull this show together. Its something that has touched the people at Blog Talk Radio, Alan, Bob, Jaime, and me–Amy very deeply.

I know Alan lives in Jersey and is just 10 miles from Manhattan and watched as his neighbors had to walk home that day, the emotion and sadness as people made their way back home on foot.

I myself grew up 13 miles outside of the city and had many relatives working in NYC, the panic we all felt till people were accounted for was indescribable.

My husbands best friend’s brother had made his way down 34 flights and walked home to Greenwich Ct. He arrive home till around midnight, and their were tears of sadness and joy the moment he came home. It was a bittersweet moment. So sad for everyone who did not make it home, and there were many.

That is what this show is going to be all about, paying tribute to the men and women, who did not make it home to their families that day. We will forever remember, and as long as people like the people at Blog Talk Radio bring these tributes to the world, we will never forget.

The response has been wonderful and so far the lineup of hosts is pretty extensive, and the outpouring of people to call in and read their own tributes has been fantastic.

Poets, bloggers, spoken word artists, and writers spent countless hours putting together some of the finest written tributes.

We will bring everyone together on 9/11 starting at 7 pm to honor the people of 9/11
Ill check in over the weekend as thing progress!!
