I don’t want to call today “patriot day”

I only feel sad. The way I always feel on this day. May those who mourn be comforted.

  1. For me it is a day of many emotions. Growing up in NYC I was able to watch the towers being built. For several years my parents worked at the WTC, so I was pretty familiar with the layout and the underground concourse. Today I had my 14 y/o son wear the 9/11 t-shirt I bought to support the firefighters 14 years ago. He was only 3 months old when I received that 6 am phone call from my husband. Honey, turn on the TV, there was a plane that accidentally flew into the WTC. The minute I turned on the TV I knew it wasn’t an accident.


  2. I had actually forgotten the date until the radio said it and then of course it all comes back. I had only been to the WTC once, to the restaurant in fact so I knew what it probably looked like that day. Whether you’ve been there or not I have to agree that it still hurts and one does feel sad. Our radios were talking about honoring the veterans and don’t get me wrong I don’t oppose that but I didn’t hear a lot about the people that died that day and that means the firefighters and the cops who went in to try and save others. I am a veteran myself but for me 9/11 belongs to the victims. Our military should be honored for their service of course but it isn’t for that particular day in September. It seems odd now that anyone would have thought a commercial plane like that would ever accidentally hit the towers but I still feel that sense of being stunned when I turned on the TV that morning and saw what was happening.


  3. It’s not, and I’ll never call it that.
