I have a folder on my computer that I've managed to save, it's on it's 4th PC in 12 years, in a backup hard drive, with images. Through each computer I manage to keep these photos, they are just as important as my family photos, and I'd like to share them with you guys. I know I'll never forget...and atleast once every year on 9/11, I take a moment to remember those lives lost. Safe to say I usually shed a tear or two as well...

Thanks for sharing Jonathan.

I for one will never forget what I saw and how I felt on that day. I was watching "Good Morning America" reporting on the fire in the first tower. They had a live feed of it on screen when the second plane crashed. Within the few seconds it took to watch the second plane enter the camera's view and hit the tower, our reality changed forever. What was being perceived as a tragic accident, was now an attack on America.

Even with all of the tragedy and fear from that day, what I remember most was the feeling of pride I felt in our country. On that day, and for months afterward we were ALL united in a way I had never seen.

Over the past few years I have tried to explain what happened to my children. My oldest was only a year old at the time and I was hugely pregnant with my second on that day. It's so hard to describe the feelings I had when it happened to my children...I guess it's the biggest example of "you just had to be there" that I have ever seen.

So for today here's what I have to say...

God bless America...I LOVE this Country!

Today, I will be praying for the families of those who were killed on this day.

DITTO....Thank you so much for sharing Jonathanm!

I was preparing to write a response and then QHorsegal's BEAUTIFUL post came in. After reading what she wrote I knew there was no way I could, or would have to write my own. Q said everything I would have said, but it was said much more eloquently than I ever could have done.

Thanks Q, and thanks Jonathanm for sharing!

I had a good friend that perished in the World Trade Center. I will NEVER forget this day!

I'm also watching Good Morning America right this minute as they remember this day in tribute to the victims and their families! God Bless!

Karen xoxo

I too was watching Good Morning America when I saw the second plane crash. Since it was "live" nobody knew what to say. It was surreal. I thought it had been some terrible coincidence. So naive! I remember driving to work later that day listening to the radio. When the pentagon was hit, it finally dawned on me that this was an attack. I kept think why us? All the lawyers in the firm were crying out "WAR!" All the secretaries were just crying. And in the midst of all this, there was such a unity. I remember President Bush getting choked up on his address. I still get choked up thinking about that!

I WILL NEVER FORGET

Thank you for this thread!

Thanks for sharing that. Most times it's just too hard to look at again.

That day everything in America changed. From a life of great freedom to do almost anything we like, to today. The TSA, NSA, Homeland Security, etc, etc,

Our children will never experience what we did as children. So many laws now that all they can do is sit inside and watch TV.

There is before 9/11/01, and there is after 9/11/01. We lost so much that day. I am sorry my children had to be a witness to that terrible day.

My friend, Eric, is a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army. This is a speech he gave his troops. It's especially pertinent today:
