Monday Memory – 9/11


­On September 11, 2001 ­I was laying in a hospital bed, having just woke up, rather hazy from a drug induced sleep, I turned on the TV and watched as the first plane hit the World Trade Tower. I remember laying there in disbelief. How could this be happening?

I immediately called my husband, he was aware of the attacks. I just needed to hear his voice. I needed reassurance that only the man I loved could give. He promised to call me every fifteen minutes, just to check on me. He knew I felt so helpless laying in that hospital bed.

One of my nurses came in and we watched the news together, both of us not holding our emotions in. To see this footage live, to see the raw emotions on peoples faces, it was heartbreaking.

I couldn’t stay in the hospital, I was determined to go home, it didn’t matter what my doctor said. When he came in later that morning, I informed him I will be going home that day to be with my family, he understood. I spent the rest of the day watching the news with my family very close to me.

Where were you on 9/11/01?

    I was at home in bed with morning sickness. When I heard what had happened, I panicked. DH was supposed to have worked a flight to Washington DC that morning! Thankfully, they closed the airport before his flight could take off!

  2. It was a day most of us will not forget. Even the kids who were young remember the fear and worry of that day! Thanks for stopping by and reading my 9/11 memory! Have a great day and a wonderful week!

    I was at home after kids had gotten off to school….watched it all day on tv. I wrote a memory of it too. I think everyone wanted to be with family that day.

    It was by the grace of God that I was able to enjoy my family that day too.

    God bless you for writing such a nice post, and tribute on top!

    I was at my daughters house waiting for her to get ready. We were going to our church to decorate the fellowship hall. Our new ministry MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) was to have its first meeting that night. I was standing in the front room and saw the second plane hit the towers and yelled for the kids to come and see!! That is when I saw that something awful was happening. The whole day was so unusual from then on. I wanted to just be with my family and know they were near!!

    Big D and I were in Nashville. He had an overnight conference. He had left the hotel for the conference and I was enjoying the wonderful hotel room. When I turned on Good Morning America, the first plane had JUST hit. While watching and listening to them trying to figure out what happen, I watched live as the second plane hit the second building! I called D upset because he had to be at the conference most of the day and all I wanted to do is hurry home to be closer to the boys! I have never felt so helpless in my life as I did that day!
