It’s crazy to think that it’s already 8 years after the 9/11/2001 attack that changed our lives forever. Seems like only yesterday when it all went down. I guess it’s just one of those moments in history that will always live with you and you’ll always remember what you were doing the exact moment it happened. For me, I remember waking up in the morning and going to school and hearing about it on the radio. I didn’t even know what was going on at the time and just kinda thought they were doing construction on the towers or something. The radio wasn’t on super loud and it was just in the background but something just didn’t seem right about it. I remember showing up for my automotive class and everyone was kinda weirded out and we all just sat in front of the television and watched it all go down. I remember seeing the footage of the 2nd plane hitting the towers and was shocked by the chaos that was occurring. They ended up cancelling classes the rest of the day and I just sat at home the rest of the day to see what was happening. Such a surreal sight to see and definitley something I will never forget. Just to see people jumping out of the building, the carnage, and people running down the street with smoke and flames in the background…..unbelievable. Times were definitely different then and today you can still see how much the world has changed since that infamous day. I can’t even imagine how it must be for the people who were directly involved and had family members lost because of this tragic event. Today we remember…..so let’s take a moment to honor those who were lost that day and the courageous individuals who put their lives on the line every single day to make sure we have freedom to live our lives without fear. 9/11/01 we will never forget.
We are all amazing individuals in our own right and we are given the opportunity to live a life of freedom and the ability to think for ourselves. Please don’t take it for granted and live your life to the fullest.
