WINDSPIRIT50 write: The new stamp for September,2005 New York City!..What do you see?
What do I see Mo, I see the lord waiting to take home those that we love that were lost in this horrific tradgedy, a rainbow for a new beginning and the American Bald Eagle... a symbol of pride and protection.
I was going home from dropping off my kids at a day care, on my way to the airport to pick up a friend coming in from Scotland. Needless to say his flight was turned around and i went home to watch in dismay. Bless all who are lost and the families.
Was doing a case in the operating room, when another nurse came in and told us about the first plane. When we learned about the second and then third strikes I went numb. My son had been home for the weekend, and had left from Hartford at 7:00AM headed for Atlanta. I tried calling him and could not reach him. Panic now setting in. Thought he had direct flight, but instead was on the ground in NC for his connecting flight. Finally spoke to him around 1:00PM. Sheer terror not knowing if he was OK. My heart aches for all those people who were killed, and the families and friends who loved them.
Mo so sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family this weekend. I was in bed had worked until 8 am....got the p-hone call turned the TV on and a first fust thought it was a really bad dream......you have my number if you need to talk this weekend God Bless
my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family this weekend!!!!!
i was at the dr's office in metro atlanta--when a woman entered and told us what has happened--and the receptionist had a tv there and put it on
received emails from friends--i grew up in jersey city and 9/11 affected everyone in their own ways--we watched the towers being built from our back porch and the high school i went to--also lost some high school friends and some that for reasons unknown weren't at work that day!!!!
I was home talking to my Dad on the p*hone when the first plane hit the North Tower.....My Dad told me to put the tv on as the second plane hit the South tower.....AT 10:28 when the first tower hit but second to fall (North) my brother Lieut. Tim Higgins S.O.C division 252 (FDNY) was lost in the collapse responding to a may day call.....My father a Ret. (Fdny)Fire Capt. got a call from my brother Mike later telling him Tim was out of radio contact for 2 hrs at which point we knew he was gone.....My brother Joe, Bob, and Matt were already there....also (FDNY) AND (NYPD)....They promised my dad they would bring him home and 19 days later they did! After the funeral they went back and dug for 5 more months. Mike broke his leg the first day....ripped the cast off ,and went back till they closed the site....to this day this is the hardest weekend for my family...We not only lost my brother but friends that we knew a lifetime! My mom is the rock....A true Firemans' Wife and Mother!
