7 Years Today.....

I was driving to school just behind the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport....looking at Air Force One sitting on the tarmac...thinking that I would have to stop on my way home to get some photos of the Presidents plane!! How neat it was that the President of the United States of America was visiting our city....he was there to read to the children of E. Booker Elementary School!! Anyways just as I was passing that amazing plane I heard that HORRIBLE New about a plane hitting tower one. As the radio people was talking about it the second one hit. My mouth hit the ground... I got goosebumps but it was like this is not really happening!!! Will it didn't sink completely in till I saw the TV....My heart dropped!! I didn't have anyone I know personally or any family in the towers but I did!! They were mothers, fathers, children, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, husbands, wife, and lovers but most of all they were all Americans that went to work that day like everyother day. I will never forget those innocent people that never came home that day and all the people that have never been found!! I'm sitting here crying because it is that emotional for me and I'm sure that I'm not the only one who still cry's about that day. To my follow American we can't forget and we never will!!!!

Thanks, Cassandra

WOW .. girl that made me tear up reading this, isnt it just unbearable to think that people would just DO THIS to other HUMANS or children, women, men I mean I am just still stunned at this. I think what hurts me more, is that not everyone is accounted for. What hurts is that this is just going to never be a closed wouned.. thankd for sharing Cassie..

love ya and miss ya

Very touching post. 9/11 is the first time in my lifetime when I will always remember every little detail of where and what I was doing.

Even though I live in Australia we couldn't believe our eyes when we saw what was happening over there 7 years ago. It must have been so terrifying for everyone.

Our thoughts are with you.
