September 11, 2001 was a day that will remain forever inscribed on the hearts and minds of all of us Americans. It was a day in which our world was changed immeasurably. All of us can remember exactly where we were when we first discovered that our beloved country had been attacked.
I was 22 and a student in the nursing program at Felician college in NJ. That morning I had been getting ready for school when my boyfriend at the time,(now my husband) called me from work and told me to turn on the news.. a plane had just flown into the World Trade Center. I watched speechless, wondering what had just happened.. was it an accident? and then the second plane hit and the world had changed. The days following this horrendous event were marked by sadness, fear and silence as the skies were devoid of planes.
My heart goes out to the families who have lost so much, to the men and women who sacrifieced their lives to save others and to those who survived it all and live with the memories.
We will NEVER forget.
