Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Where
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “where.” Use it any way you’d like!
Where was I on 9/11 twenty years ago?
I was at home just eating breakfast at the kitchen table and reading. I can’t remember what I was reading, either a book or the morning newspaper.
The TV news was on and I heard the breaking news announcement and looked up to see the horror that would continue about the horrific news that would be on all that day. I hurried up and put in a VHS tape, and let it run. I still have it.
Honestly, I’m not all that familiar with New York landmarks or buildings or anything, except the Statue of Liberty. I’ve seen that. So, I’d never even heard of the World Trade Center twin towers before.
My daughter had just left for her college classes, and my husband was at work. We didn’t have a cell phone, so no texting for us, but we did have phone calls to make to each other, and to my other daughter in another state. It was so scary to hear all of what was happening. We didn’t know anyone who was close to the devastation that day.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years ago. May peace be to all those who perished, and those who continue to suffer from the continuing memories and health concerns to this day. ❤
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
