Terror Attack on America


Where Were you on September 11, 2001?

Today is the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on our country. It is one of those life-altering events in history when you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing.

On September 11, 2001, I woke early to do my morning power walk before going to work. I had my AM/FM radio headset on as I headed out for the hour work out. I cranked up my favorite radio station (Cities 97) that played upbeat music, perfect to ensure a fast pace.

Just a few minutes into my walk, the radio D.J.'s became upset as they relayed information coming into them. They had gotten word that a plane crashed into one of the twin towers in New York. It was obvious by their serious tones, they were shaken by the shocking news and in a state of confusion. All of us listening to a radio station or watching the news, tried to figure out if the plane crash was an accident or an act of terrorism.

Tears streamed down my face when it was confirmed that America was under attack. I ran back to my apartment as fast as possible so I could be with family as events of the day unfolded.

Positive Outcomes of 911

September 11, 2001, is a day Americans will never forget. We lost our naïve innocence but have become more vigilant in matters of national security.

I also know countless stories of people that made big life changes after this attack. It made people think about their mortality and ask themselves if they were in the right career, with the right person, etc...Good can always come from bad events. Pain and difficulties in life can be a source of motivation and teach us important life lessons.

My heart will never forget the heroes who lost their lives because of pure evil. I am proud to be an American, especially after watching accounts of how strangers pulled together that day to help each other.

The terrorists may have attacked us that September day but they can never take away our Pride and bond as Americans.

Let us never forget the heroes and victims of that fateful day
