Unbelievable Sadness......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I remember the first significant loss I experienced as a kid. It was ten days before Kennedy was murdered. My uncle Bob passed in his forties. Since then there have been many moments of sadness. I remember and grieve each one. On this day eighteen years ago there was a tragedy of such magnitude that it is still hard to comprehend. Each of us who remembers has a pain no other can really get. And so today, I deal with my memories as you deal with your own. Let our hurt be helped by each other and may we never live to experience another loss of this magnitude.

Sheila- things changed and we realized how vulnerable we are. Let's love and respect others and hopefully the ripples of that will keep going.

Hi Sheila... comprehending what happened 18 years ago is no easier today than it was then. And I am affected emotionally by 9/11 each year just as I was on the day it happened.

Sheila - this is a day I will never forget.  If you were in NJ at the time you knew many who had cars left in commuter parking lots.  I remember the horror but also "United We Stand"

I think about the Murrah bombing often that happened in Oklahoma City and the friends I lost that day. I lost a former employee in the World Trade Center.

I still remember the the shock of that morning eighteen years ago.  There were so many nuances that I was involved in afterward.  For example, my boss at the time was in Florida on a business trip along with several other employees at the software development company I worked.  They could not fly out of that state for several days because there was suspicious activity going on in that state which made it impossible.  They finally rented a car, and drove to Atlanta after about 4 days, and then flew home!

Good morning Sheila Anderson ,

It was devastating as each of us learned of what happened with the vicious attack on our country. It was unbelievable and fear set in and such overwhelming sadness that we were so vulnerable.
