September 11th

I remember growing up,
my mom telling me many times,
that she will never forget,
where she was,
what she was doing,
the moment that she found out that
President John F. Kennedy had been shot.

That is how I felt on September 11th, 2001.
I will never forget
that I was home with a sick baby.
I will never forget having the tv on just for noise,
then the sound of Peter Jennings voice cutting in
and the live images that followed.
It was like a Hollywood blockbuster.
Except it wasn't.
It was real.
It was reality.
It was beyond imaginable.
It was sad and scary.
Words can not describe the horror.

No I will NEVER forget!
