Yes, I remember the story about the plane heading to London...

And here I am in front of the display, exactly like one year ago.

I visited the forum where I was when it happened.

Strange mood

Walking to my building this morning I noticed how quiet everything is.

Everyone knows NYC is the loudest city on earth....not today.

"We'll probably never know if the plane ultimately was headed toward the White House or the Capitol. But no matter where it was ultimately headed, the act of heroism that took place on that aircraft stands out as one of the most amazing feats of heroism in our country's long history of heroes." (re: Flight 93.)

'A day of tears and a day of prayer and a day of national resolve'

On the news a man who survived despite being on floor #84 of Tower2 (only 17 people survived from above the impact of the plane in that tower) said something pretty powerful. He remarked how many months, years, of planning this took by those terrorist. Years of planning evil. In matters of moments, New Yorkers, Americans and humans worldwide instinctively responded with selflessness, grace, goodness, risking and sometimes giving their own lives for others. If there is a light in all of this, I think that would be it.

Hang in there, sharky and loopy and all NYC interferencers. The entire planet mourns with you today.

I also just read through some of the original thread started here last year. I cannot believe a year has gone by. It feels like less than a month, but a very long month. I hear my coworkers laughing and carrying on outside my office, but I'm not feeling up to that today. *shuts office door* I'd rather be here with y'all anyway.

Even though they psyched us into fearing planes now more than anything

that's all you could hear at nighttime over the DC Metro area.

It was friggin SCARY.

Military, gov't planes and helicopters. Not a nice thing to wake up to or try to go to sleep too.

Anthrax scares and bomb threats in local malls and buildings and downtown.

my own personal memorial service


8:46am est
moment of silence
slip in ATYCLB
Walk On
Kite (watch eerie reflection of my American flag from front porch somehow wind up on the back deck)
Peace On Earth
New York (try to find disc with towers pix NJ view from 5/01 in pile of at least 20 unlabeled discs, it's the first one I find)
Grace (pray for those who don't understand the pain, pray for those who do)
9:24 (with Elvis playing in the background) speak to my husband who is in Chicago wondering why I didn't call him at 8:46. realized this is when I called him one year ago in a Newark hotel next to the airport to tell him to look out his window. he watched both towers collapse, smelled the smoke and felt the dust come over the river. we were supposed to share life changing experiences, but we each have our own journeys.

hugged and kissed my kids a lot today and told them that freedom and peace are part of the American dream.

Peace and one love to all
