I remember…

I remember standing outside of Kenan Hall at Flagler College and hearing that a plane had crashed into one of the towers.

I remember sitting in class and an administrator interrupting class to tell us that a second plane had hit the second tower, the country was under terrorist attack and all classes were cancelled.

I remember sitting in the student lounge and watching the first tower come down.

WTC-041

I remember sitting with my girlfriend (now my wife) at her house watching the second tower come down.

I remember the anger and the hurt and the sadness I felt.

I remember the rescue workers frantically digging.

I remember firefighters carrying their own out of the rubble.

I remember the panic and heartache of those trying to find their loved ones.

I remember when “rescue” became “recovery”.

  1. 8:57 a.m. September 11, 2001, standing in the Brigade HQ at Ft. Dix talking to the Bde Commander. Two years later to the day I was standing in Baghdad.

    Never forget.

  2. I found my way over here from Ace of Spades HQ. I too remember 12 years ago and the shock I felt watching the events unfold in New York, D.C., and PA. I will never forget either. Thank you.

  3. if you are going to show images don’t add to the drama with images that aren’t form the scene…”I remember the field in Pennsylvania” that image shows a plane where there wasn’t one… any video you will see of the site show no plane
