THat was such a good read,

especially as it is a personal account of the tragedy. What a great reminder to cherish each day and to show our love for the people we care about.

Thank you for posting this. People who do not live in NY or on LI and were either there, or knew scores of people there that day, do not understand the horror we felt and still fell every day.

We lost a fireman friend (LI volunteer fireman with 5 children) who wasn't even supposed to be there but had to help. My 23 year old nephew who worked in the WTC, and was sent out for outside work that morning minutes before they were hit, was missing for 48 hours after. I relive those moments every time they show anything on TV..I still can not watch. And it is nothing compared to the ones that were in the City that day.
Thank you for posting this.

Fabulous story - thank you so much for sharing this.....i plan to print this out & save it for my childeren in a 911 time magazine keepsake that i have for each one. Hearing a story first hand like this truly gave me goose bumps - such a horrific time for so many, but sharing her story keeps us close to the truth of that day. i plan to share on my fb pages as well! hugs to you!

What a heart wrenching account.
Living here and WV it was hard to understand what had happened. When another teacher came into my classroom with the news it seemed impossible. Later that day, sitting in my backyard,everything seemed the same as before. The flowers were still beautiful,the hummingbirds were busy at the feeder Yet things would really never be quite the same again. Let us never forget.
