It's hard to believe 10 years ago today was 09.11.01... I remember everything I did on that day. I was woken up by a phone call from my mom telling me to turn on the TV and that there had been a terrorist attack. I remember watching the 2nd plane fly into the other world trade center building and I remember asking myself is this real?
I graduated from high school 3 month before and was in college. I was talking to my best friend at the time, Adrianna, and I remember the first building falling down.... It then hit me it was for real when I saw people running from the huge cloud of dust and debris.
It was a Tuesday and I only had one college class that day, English. I was scared to go to school, but I did. I remember walking into the building and down the stairs to where my class was. There was a group of people huddled around the TV and there was my teacher telling all of us to go home.
I go home and I was also scared to go to work that day, but I went... I worked at Wendy's and we hardly had any business. We spent most of the time in the back of the store watching the TV my manager brought in. There was a few points in the day we thought we heard plane flying by and I remember everyone being worried if something was going to happen in the area I lived in, since we lived about 2 hours from Shanksville.
I have goosebumps right now, as I am recalling this day.
Two years ago Matt and I stopped by the flight 93 memorial on our way home from Baltimore over the 4th of July weekend.
It was a surreal place to be. I remember how quiet it was... you could hear a pin drop.
Here are a few pictures from our trip...
