AMEN NANA! Truly a day we will remember forever.
Please let us also honor the heros of Flight 93 that crashed in Shanksville PA at 10:03, and the brave souls of the Pentagon attack as well.
We will never forget! Hugs to family and friends of these valiant individuals!!!
And a special heartfelt thanks to the heros on flight 93 that prevented the ultimate goal of the hijackers. God Bless all the heros of 9/11.
I haven't made any leaf blocks so that means I'm still OK - right???
Gini - loved your joke!
You are so right Nana. And I am sure we can all remember exactly what we were doing when we heard the news. Just like us "older" folks can remember what we were doing when JFK was assassinated.
this was sent to me by a man from Far, Far away. Lucky for him.
Sounds like a man LOL
Definitely had to be from a man...ROFLOL
I can vaguely remember JFKs assasination. But I don't know if it is really memory or just that I have seen it over and over againg since. I was only about 6 at the time but I remember feeling very scared.

Not by a long shot. LOL

I can vividly remember JFK's assassination. I didn't have the TV on - had enough chaos without that. I was sitting with my feet up because I was 8 months pregnant with our third daughter while our 1 yr old and 2 yr old girls were racing around me. When the school bus came, my 15 year old sister-in-law came in to tell me about the assassination. They had heard about it in school. We turned on the TV and watched for the rest of the day.
During 9-11 we were glued to the TV also, this time with young grandchildren around me. Even the 2 year old seemed to understand what was going on. She is a very bright 12 year old now. Her older brothers who were 5 and 6 at the time were curious about what was happening so we had some good discussions about it. Our son and daughter-in-law don't hide anything from their children. The boys had heard about it in school, so needed to see what was happening because of all the strange things they had heard from the other children on the bus. The 5 year old is very sensitive and needed reassurance that it wasn't going to happen here. Such difficult things for such young children to experience. This world we live in doesn't hide anything from the young.

I, too, can vividly remember JFK's assassination. I was a freshman in high school and it effected me deeply. We were let out of school early and I spent the entire weekend and longer glued to the TV.

We had a television in our office during the 9/11 ordeal and everyone was watching it and crying. These are days that are vivid in my mind. My Dad, feels the same way about Pearl Harbor...he said they were glued to the radio all day and as soon as he was old enough (he was 16 when it happened), he joined the Army. He served in the Philippines. He won't talk about it much his experience there, but he did win a Silver Star.
