911 memory

Postby vmackenzie » Wed Sep 07, 2011 2:25 pm

As I turned on the television that morning I remember seeing the building on fire and remarking immediately that that was no oridinary fire. I did not know that a plane had hit the building at that point, but my gut told me this was a dastardly event. As I watched the events that morning, my then 4 year old daughter, asked me “ daddy are you going to go to the big fire”. All I was thinking of was the firefighters of New York and the hell their spouses and children must have been enduring as they also watched it live knowing their daddy or mommy was there. Then to everyones horror -we watched as they die on live telivision. It was heart wrenching!
