The main thought that ran through my mind was that I wanted to leave work, go pick my 4 year old daughter up from daycare and hold her as tight as I could. I wanted to go home very badly.

On Sept 11, 2001 I was driving to work on I94 eastbound. When the news of the attacks came over the radio I was right next to the Detroit Metro Airport. I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

My heart goes out to all the victims and their families.

And to the many heros great and small.

I was in my car on the way to work when my local radio station announced the tragic news. I vaguely remember the rest of my trip to work because I was so stunned. When I got to work, I immediately closed my door and fell to my knees in prayer for the people who had lost loved ones. I knew that whether directly or indirectly, we were all affected by this act of terrorism.

I was at home in California. When I woke up that morning, many calls and emails had come in from co-workers and family back east. Everyone I knew was fine. I looked at the TV, but turned it off immediately. Just couldn't bear to watch the tragedy in my beloved New York.

From my back patio I saw a foursome of lady golfers, laughing, chatting, playing golf. The terrible news hadn't reached them yet. I thought of shouting out to clue them in, but I decided not. Let them remain in their blissful, pre-9/11 state of mind for a little while longer. Enjoy peace as long as possible. They would hear about it soon enough.

It was surreal to see these happy ladies, oblivious to the news, when the rest of the world was so saddened. I was witnessing people who existed in a different historical era.

I was in my car coming home from work,
as a nurse i heard that a plane had crashed into the twin towers, and it was an accident..... then as i continued to drive the horror unfolded.
I cried most of the way home, i couldnt understand how anyone could commit such evil on another human being.
A year on watching the pain and suffering of those families affected by the tradgedy my heart still sinks and i feel an incredible disbelief still.
Watching the strength and resiliance of the people of new york has made me slowly believe in the overall goodness of people.
Those who give there all and there lives for others.
A year on i know i will always remember how i felt on and after that day and hope that no city will ever have to suffer again the agony of 11th Sept
God Bless
