I still remember

Where I was on that Tuesday morning: by my locker in my senior year of high school.

I still remember the panic and confusion even though we were thousands of miles away.

I still remember the pain and sadness felt by all.

May I never forget. May we never forget.

I still remember.

Where were you when you found out? What was your reaction?


  1. i was getting ready for work in sister in law lived in NYC so we were trying to get ahold of her...i also had to wake my family up in HI.

    i, too, never want to forget.

  2. How hard to be so far away from your sister-in-law. Was she ok? Also, I imagine very hard to have to tell family in HI about it before they even knew. :(

    I don't want to forget at all! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I was in college in Flagstaff. I woke up for an early morning class, didn't turn on the TV, walked to class...and people were crying in the hallways, watching the news. I went and called Tim (who was still asleep). "Turn on the TV," I said. And we both sat silent on the phone, our hearts breaking for all of the lives lost.

  4. Stephanie-Just hearing your description of it brought tears to my eyes and chills too. My heart still breaks today thinking of it.


Feel free to share any jewels or treasures in your comments to me. :)
