I remember

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302

I remember the day that caused the nation to gasp a collective cry.

I remember the day that my employees stopped working to watch the TV.

I remember thinking a bad joke was being played on me when I heard.

I remember watching.

I remember the quiet that followed. No planes in the air.

I remember sending my employees home to be with thrie families.

I remember wondering what would come next.

I remember the confusion in NY.

I remember the flags coming out within days on all the sttreet corners.

I remember the new found patriotism.

I remember people coming together against a common foe.

I remember the twin beams of light rising into the sky where the towers once stood.

I remember to wear a flag pin commemorating the day every year.

I remember. You should too.

Hello Peter - there are still memories of that day that come flashing back to me.  Not just on September 11 but seemingly for no reason but there is a reason. . .

Hi, Peter.

This is one memory that isn't going away for any of us who were alive that day.

Hi Peter- I remember that day and the days after. I also remember how we all came together to help each other.
