The Day The World Stood Still.

I think it goes without saying that everyone knows this anniversary and what it signifies. I can only describe it as a day that really changed the world as a whole.

I cannot believe it was 8 years ago when truly it really only feels like yesterday it happened. It is one of those days where you knew exactly what you were doing and where you were. It was a day where you wished that what you were seeing on the screen and hearing on the radio was some horrible movie. I remember leaving school and just having that feeling in your gut that 'something' did not feel right. I remember panicking that something had happened to my family and when I heard the news I realised that what I had been fearing was happening to over 3000 other families. How can you even begin to try and comprehend that?

This was reality being laid out before our eyes and still is today a stark truth of a reminder as to what type of world we do live in. We all grieved and felt a huge sense of loss and no words will ever convey the hopelessness.

This morning I saw this image in the paper and I think for the first time I have felt a bit of pride on this day other than just loss. The victims were the heroes we miss terribly, and the thousands of people who tried to save them were the un-sung heroes whom we will thank forever.

I remember it like it just happened. You never think anything this horrible will happen in your country but we are so wrong. I only pray that we as a world learn to exist in peace; we don't need any more hate.

I can definitely still remember where I was and how it felt... Not something I ever want to feel again, and I wouldn't wish it upon anybody.

On september the 11th this year I first noticed the date and thought about what happened and truly feels like yesterday.
Even I coming from Germany stil remember what I did on this day. It is burned in my memory and in some others probably too.
This year I prayed for the lost and the heros. Let us never forget a day like this.

I'm glad you posted this. It really does show how the whole world is involved because you don't even live in America and you feel so strongly about this. I will never forget this day. I was in the 8th grade and I woke up and turned on the TV just as the first plane hit. I didn't even know what the wtc was and I didn't think there were people in it either. My parents were freaking out and then we watched the second plane hit. I went to school that day and we sat and watched the news all day, we even got to go home early to be with our families and loved ones. Even though I was so far from New York at the time it still affected us just as much. The whole US was filled with fear and stuck around waiting for the next attack. Scary times! I can't believe we are still at war over this also. Many of my friends have gone overseas to fight and they come home different than when they left. It is a sad sad thing :( Thanks for writing this blog. You always find a way to reach my heart!

Nice post Rebecca - even though we don't live in America, this was an event that affected the lives of all of us! It really was the day the world changed!

Samantha said...

I don't think anyone will ever forget.

I remember being at my horse riding lesson that day, at first I didn't understand what was happening but half way through there were shouts and screams from the little hut where your parents waited. The second tower had fallen. I'll never forget the looks on all those parents faces. Chilled me to the bone.

I'm reading a beautiful book at the moment by a woman who has the only child born from a victim after 9/11. It's called "The Blue Skies of Autumn".

Stacie said...

what a nice post for this day. it is appreciated, greatly, to know others care who don't live here. i know your area, though, has not been free of attacks either. it is a scary world we live in. thanks for remembering.
