Remembering September 11, 2001

Do you remember where you were on Sept. 11, 2001?

I think that most adult Americans alive at that time do.

I was using my sister-in-law's internet to do some research on a job I was trying to get when her sister-in-law called to tell her about the plane crashing into the World Trade Center.  Then of course I couldn't get back onto the internet as the phone lines were jammed from all the people trying to get through.  I was stunned, couldn't think of what to do.  My sister-in-law didn't have TV and I just couldn't think of where to go to see what was going on.

My husband later told me that I should have gone to Walmart or Radio Shack, some place that had TV's set up so I could have watched some of the footage -- though in later days we did see plenty.

That night we went with our Ward to the Temple, our session was packed with people, of course we were all there to do work for deceased people but we also wanted the spiritual comfort that one feels only in the Temple.

I have watched a few clips today from that day, here's a link to one collection:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lKZqqSI9-s&playnext=1&list=PLF6D49686A8D03DC9&feature=results_main

This link is one that my cousin posted on his Facebook page today:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvHy4aIoQXU&feature=plcp

For all those who have given their lives for freedom's cause, and for the ones who yet  fight for our Nation's Freedoms, this day I fly my flag for you!!!  I pray for you too!
