Where were you on 9/11 ?

Hi friends, my heart is heavy as I think back to that dark day  5 years ago today.I woke up like any other day to get ready for work.I turned on the news to watch the traffic reports and I saw a breaking news story on and a plane that slammed into one of the World Trade Center buildings.I could'nt understand what was going on at first, I sat frozen with shock wanting to run and wake my mom and brother up, I could'nt believe what I was seeing, when the second plane hit I knew it was'nt an accident.I was crying and shaking and a mess. I keep trying to put lip gloss on before I left for work but my hand would'nt stop shaking. I somehow made it to work.I had never felt more helpless in my life.The store had an eerie stillness and my co-workers seemed dazed.This was before sweet  Anthony came into my life and the manager we had back in 2001 was a neurotic crazy lady who lived on caffiene and never ate.She was like a jack rabbit on speed running around the store.Anyhow there were no customers at all in the store all day except maybe two.Chris my asst manager then who I did'nt care for much said I could go home early, I was more then happy to.Sept 11'th was the day the world lost it's innocence , It's a day I will never forget as long as I live.The world will never be the same.God bless all the familys who lost loved ones that day, God bless all the firefighters and NY policemen, I love you all, God bless you all , Love Always Lisa

I will never forget where I was. I was on the computer, and I had the morning news on....then my son came down to watch, I walked in right when they broke in on what had happened! My son and I froze! The phone was ringing off the hook, and we both didn't even care to answer. From the very moment on, it has changed my family and how we feel about that day as well. Yes, I don't feel safe like I used to. Sad.
