September 11th – Where Were You? #Giveaway #CAN And #US

There are certain times in our life, that we will never forget. One of those times is September 11th. I’m sure that each and every one of you can remember where you were and what you were doing. I most definitely do. In fact, it’s as clear as if it happened yesterday.

It was early morning and my children had just gotten up. My husband was sleeping because he had returned home just hours earlier from Vegas. Suddenly, my oldest daughter ran down from her room, shouting that a plane had hit a building. Of course, at this time, we thought it was some kind of accident. I rushed to turn on the tv. Exactly at that moment, I saw the second tower struck. To say I was dumbfounded is an understatement.

I’m not sure how long my oldest and I stared at the tv before I became aware of my surroundings again.┬áThe entire day became a blur of screams, 1st responders, smoke, chaos and disbelief. This September 8th, a film is being released that stars Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg. The film 9/11 is based on a true story and chronicles the lives of five average, everyday people who find themselves trapped in an elevator during the events of September 11th in the World Trade Centre.

    I was at home getting ready to head to a very important meeting when the news on tv caught my eye. I ended up being very late for the meeting.

  18. I was at home watching it with my parents, & remember how scary it was knowing how many ppl were in that building.

  19. I was traveling to another city when I heard the shocking news on radio

  20. Stephanie LaPlante says:

    I actually remember the exact day this happened. I was in high school getting ready for class pictures. In the gymnasium, it was as if time stopped and everyone watched the devastating tragedy on TV.

  21. Pearl Saban says:

    I has just gotten to work and was waiting for the elevator. A workmate joined me and said she’d hard on the radio that a plane had flown into one of the Twin Towers. Thought it was a horrible flight accident. Got to my floor and radios were playing and people gathered and in disbelief as worse news followed. We were told to go home a few hrs later as nobody could work…
    It was also my mother in law’s birthday….

  22. I was at work that day, but driving home I will never forget how eerie and spooky it was there was no one outside and no cars on the road, so for the 25 min. drive home felt like it was taking forever and I couldn’t wait to get home, such a sad day!

  23. I was at home watching Good Morning America when they reported that a plane had flown into a building. At first I thought it by mistake, an error on the pilot’s part. It didn’t take too long to figure out this was something much larger and more horrific than any of us could have imagined.
