Its odd thinking back to 9/11 I was old enough to still be able to clearly remember the day, and know that it was an incredibly important day, and quite a scary day, but I was still young enough that I am pretty sure that some of the incredible gravity of the situation was lost on me. It would be interesting to hear other peoples accounts of the day.

My Daughter-in-law and granddaughter were to catch a plane that day in LA to come home to Tennessee. Thank goodness it was later in the day. Our son was stationed in LA and his dad called him at 6 a.m. California time and told him to turn on the TV. He had awakened me by standing at the foot of the bed saying, "Get up. We're under attack." Our world changed.
DIL and GD didn't get home for 11 more days.
