Mck Linky Blog Hop - Remembering 9/11/01

Monday, September 7, 2009

This week's blog hop topic is "Remembering 9/11." I was in Jury Duty. We were excused. I listened to the radio all the way home, confused and in disbelief. I sat glued to the tv at home. In shock and sickened. I received a call from my husband of 10 days. He was at work, as a search and rescue helicopter crewman in the Navy. There were sending him to DC. My father worked across the street from the Pentagon. The lines were jammed. I couldn't get a hold of anyone. It was a long, frightening, and very surreal day.

I was a sophomore in college. I was already at school, and remember exactly who told me about it. Then came my turn to tell others who hadn't heard... Sad day!
