Never forget.

Listen and remember how it all unfolded.

I was there. Certified victim as well. 4 conditions related to 9/11. I certainly will never forget that day and the horror as well as the people I knew that were lost. I recall watching both towers fall from not that far away. I recall running downstairs after the first plane hit and looking up at the tower It looked surreal as if it was painted. I recall the panic of being locked in the building when we were trying to get out. Broke the glass with chairs until we were out. The escape doors were chained shut. Spent the next 8 hours with a group of people, one who was in one tower... trying to get out of NYC. City was locked down. So much more... Cry

Yikes CO! Thank The Lord that you managed to escape. What an awful event for our entire nation, but personally an utter horror that so many survivors went through.

That morning I was returning a cable box thingy (had just bought a 'cable ready' TV). The cable office had a big screen wall mounted TV and the News was talking about a 'plane accident' at the towers. Then the second plane hit. I returned the box and decided to go straight back home. As I drove down the main highway several Military jets from Otis Air Force Base literally screamed through the sky.

When I got back home I remained glued to the TV...I couldn't believe what I was watching. When the towers fell the horror and panic really set in. My college room mate had called me, her husband was a doctor in NYC, she couldn't reach him on her cell phone.

This attack touched all Americans in some manner. When Rep Omar made that comment, "some people did something" it totally infuriated me. This was an attack on innocent civilians based on a sick and perverse religious belief system...we must never forget.

Haunts me to this day. The woman I commuted with and sat next to for 20 years was killed instantly. Took a direct hit on her floor in the WTC, Didn't know what happened to her for almost a week.

Shittybank made us go back to work a few days later when the building was used for a triage center. The smell was overwhelming. My coworker was coming out of the subway and seen the people jumping. It wasn't until he ran into our building did we realize what was happening. Picture 500 people on each floor trying to get out via a back hallway.

About a year later all my symptoms started. It took years to link it to 9/11. What a difficult process to get certified. Took all these years and multiple doctors. Finally certified back in March of this year.

Many, many years later the woman I mentioned above...her finger with her wedding band was found. Her husband remarried and it's eerie just how much his new wife looks like his deceased one.

You will hear her name recited today...Virginia Jablonski...may she R.I.P. Cry

I was doing a run for FEDEX from Memphis to Brazil. When we passed Miami they told us they were re-directing all air traffic, but since we were headed to Brazil, they said to continue. They wouldn't say what had happened. We tried to contact the company, but our HF radio wasn't working too well, so we managed to get in touch with a UPS plane that was headed to Mexico with our vhf radio.

They said that all the aircraft in the US had been grounded, because a plane had struck the WTC. They didn't know whether it was a terrorist event or an accident, but their company had told them to check their cargo for anything unusual (bombs). We did the same. When we landed in Brazil we were surrounded with people armed with all kinds of weapons.

Turned out they were Brazilian security guards who were gonna escort us through customs, and deliver us to the hotel. We didn't really know the extent of what had happened back in the US until each of us got to our rooms, and were able to watch the news. Before we contacted that UPS plane we were thinking nuclear attack, because that was the only thing we could think of that would cause all US air traffic to be grounded.

There's a lot more to the story, but maybe for another day...  Wink
