Remember Our Fallen Heroes

Today is a day to reflect and remember.  Today marks the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our country.  September 11, 2001.  A moment of silence, prayer, a visit to a church or a memorial site…all ways to pay tribute to those who lost their lives that day.  And, a tribute to the survivors, who lost loved ones or have suffered health issues from doing their best to help others.

We all can remember where we were on that September 11, 2001.  I was doing the Morning show on News Radio 1290 WNBF when I heard shouting in the newsroom adjacent to our on-air studio at about 850 AM, just a couple of minutes after the initial plane crash.  We had a television monitor on in case of major stories or weather alerts that could occur.  Little did any of us know what was ahead.  “A plane has hit the World Trade Towers”  I was told.  I remember thinking what kind of plane, a passenger plane, a single-engine plane ?  No one knew the scope of this…just that something awful had happened.

My shift ended at 9 AM but before I could grab my papers and headphones to get to the news room I heard another shout from the room….”.another plane crash !!!!  It was so shocking, so confusing that we just couldn’t begin to grasp what was happening.  Then came the crash into the Pentagon and then the crash of Flight 93 at Shanksville, Pa.  We were under attack.  The United States would never be the same.
