On this day, I was 24 years old, eagerly anticipating my wedding day that was set for October 13, 2001.
I was making my bed, and my Fiancé called me and said “Are you watching the news” I said “No, Why”? A plane just crashed into the World Trade center.
I turned the TV on and watched in horror.
My saddest memory, because of where I was at in my life, was watching a young woman around my age on Good Morning America holding a picture of her fiancé saying , “I need to find him, please help me” Looking straight into the camera, “We are getting married, this can’t be happening”.
I will never forget, all those who lost their lives that day, and the bravery of all the Firefighters and rescue personnel who lost their lives, and risked their lives.
Today let’s reflect on how blessed we are to not have to deal with this on a regular basis, as in other countries. Thank you God for my freedom, and safety.
