Remembering 9/11

While this blog is mostly tailored towards my likes, loves, and desires in fashion, art, food, etc, it cannot go unmentioned that today marks the 8 year anniversary of 9/11/01.

The day still haunts us all, as it's one of those days you will remember forever. I was in French class, 11th grade, wearing a Banana Republic beige skirt and purple tshirt. The news spread fast, "the twin towers are burning". What? What does that mean? A pit in my stomach, fear spreading over my body like goosebumps. Uncertainty, what's happening? Rushed to the next class, mine was English, the whole school sat and watched as the days events unfolded. I went home and was glued to the TV for days. I couldn't stop watching, yet I was so scared I slept in my mom's room for weeks.

While I am thankful that none of my loved ones were lost, it's important to remember those who did lose family, friends, colleagues, etc.

Where were you on 9/11/01? Let's all remember.

  1. I think this is a wonderful tribute post.

    I had just started high school, I believe. I was getting ready for school that morning - watching "Little House On the Prairie" - when the show was interrupted with images of the towers being hit. I remember instantly thinking of my Uncle.

  2. Wonderful tribute, Jaime. My aunt worked so close by and when we couldn't reach her for hours we thought the worst. She was late to work that day and I'm grateful for that. Some of my dad's coworkers were killed while they were on a conference call with Toronto. It's so terrible. I'm grateful for the survivors and my heart and prayers go out to the many who lost their loved ones.

  5. Very nice tribute. It's a sad & emotional day here in NY. As we go into work today, let's remember those that did the same 8 years ago but did not return home. (And thank you to my hubby for all that you do for NYC and NYPD.)

  7. I remember just as I was drifting off to sleep, hearing on the television that a plane had gone into one of the towers. Waking up to the dreadful news the next morning was an enormous shock, I can't imagine what it was like... what it must still be like for Americans today.
