Can’t believe it’s been 20 years…..9/11/2001

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary since that tragic, heartbreaking day for America. I was only 11 going on 12 when this happened. Our bus driver wanted us to be quiet so she can hear the on the radio about the World Trade Center. I think her teacher showed us on the TV. I don’t remember but when we first saw it we were in shock. So horrible and terrifying. I’m still trumatized from it to this day. Sending prayers to those who lost their family and friends on that horrible day. 🙏🏽🙏🏽💔💖😭😢🇺🇸 🇺🇸
I was 41 and had the day off. I watched tv at home on the West Coast; several of those planes were scheduled to return to California. One of my colleagues was scheduled to fly on 93 from Boston, where he’d been visiting his mother. She didn’t want him to leave, she had a “feeling” so he postponed his flight until later.

I was your age(now). I hope I never have to go through anything like that again. Actually, I hope no one has to.

[@868864,HannahSky] Yes. I actually played a wedding reception, of all things, yesterday. If you're curious, check that post out. It was supremely moving, but in a hopeful way.
[@329500,uncalled4] such a curious day for a wedding

[@868864,HannahSky] It was rescheduled 3 times due to Covid. I imagine they got a deal on that date! There were a plethora of remembrances happening simultaneously with police everywhere.

Yes it's hard to believe. I've been watching a 9/11 documentary on Netflix with my 21 year old son. He never experienced it and it's hard for me to explain exactly how deeply it impacted us all, but the documentary is doing a good job of showing him a glimpse of how traumatic it was

And would уоu not feel sad for the millions of people killed by уоur соuntry as well ?
yeah to think a cold blooded businessman in his 70's would kill 2k people for 4b$ is shocking
