It was my day off. My best friend and I were catching up on the phone long-distance. What's new with you and that sorta stuff. We were talking about my visiting her on my much anticipated vacaton the last two weeks of September.
Then her cell phone rang. Her husband called. Turn on the tv! What channel? Any of them...
Oh my God. As we desperately watched to see what was going on, it became clear this was no accident. I work for USAirways, and was terrified. While I was initially relieved to know it was not one of our flights - I was horrified and heartbroken for the United and American Airlines employees and passengers!
I didn't know anyone personally that perished in the attack. But when I returned to work that next Thursday...well, it was just not the same. It was so quiet. There were not many people calling for reservations, and the ones that were calling - were cancelling.
Hearing the fear in every passenger's voice was the second most ...? Upsetting, depressing, scariest thing? Knowing that this was only the beginning was the first.

It was unusual for me to have slept in that late that morning. My son 4, was sleeping in and my husband had already got up and left for work long before I got the call from my Neighbor, Saying "are you awake?" I said not really. She said wake up and turn on the T.v. I did, and I saw what was happening and began to cry of course, I was 7 and a 1/2 months pregnant and I thought for sure I was going into labor. My husband is a marine, and the first thing I did was pick up the phone and call him, but all lines were busy , it was a complete chaos. I couldn't get a hold of him till around 5 pm that night, and all my family members called me to make sure I was okay, Every neighbor I knew was at my house huddled around my T.v watching in disbeleif . All our kids were in the house. and no one would allow anyone to go outside it was very scary to all of us, even living on a military base we were unsure. I still think about it and tommorrow it will have been one year and my son will be a year old, My heart goes out to everyone that has a lost and missed on in thier lives.

Sept.11,2001 is a day that I will never forget. I was having a fitful sleep.. I had been dreaming a horrible dream only to wake up and see bits and pieces of the dream coming true right before my eyes. I had been dreaming of three planes crashing into each other and I was running for cover i could feel glass and debris hitting me stinging me.. my husband woke me up right when the wing of one of the planes was going to fall right on top of me... I was relieved to know that I was only dreaming.. But then came the news.. There was no good morning it was only America is under attack... I thought oh no this is one of the dreams where you think you wake up but you are still asleep..but it wasn't.. he told me that the world trade centers were gone they were no more... the pentagon had been hit as well and that the white house was thought to be next on the list.. I was gripped with intense fear.. i began to cry out WHY??? I did not know what was going to happen next... My city has the biggest oil refinery on the east coast... I was afraid that they may try to attack that as well.. I did learn something from this day that i had always known but never practiced until that day... DON'T EVER TAKE ANYONE FOR GRANTED..TELL YOUR LOVED ONES THAT YOU LOVE THEM.. BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN IT IS TIME FOR YOU OR ANYONE ELSE TO GO.. AND IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOUR DO IT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE...
