I remember.

I remember waking up to the telephone ringing; hearing my sister-in-law's voice on the answering machine.  "Are you guys awake?  You need to see the news."  ToolMan and I jumped out of bed and turned on the television to see the reports of the first plane hitting the World Trade Center.

A few minutes later, the cameras showed the second plane hitting the other Tower.

Then the reports from the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

We watched the towers fall.

And we felt the world tilt on its axis, changed forever.


  1. We got a similar phone call that morning. I'm still horrified at how much evil people are capable of.

  2. Roxie sez
    Part of me kept wanting to believe it was a movie - some sort of special effects - not real. within two hours, the whole world was saying, "What can I do to help?" Oregon donated hundreds of gallons of blood, and the Air Guard carried it to NewYork.
