I was sitting in my cubicle listening to my cd player. Just a normal day at work. I felt someone tap on my shoulder and I took the earphones off my head, and the voice from behind me said, " The World Trade Center just got hit by a plane!" I immediately thought, "no way", and went back to work. It didn't even phase me that something this tragic had happened. After the first plane hit, then the second, I felt another tap on my shoulder. This time I stood up in my cubicle, and thought about my family as I listened to the radio in my office. I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. I immediately thought of my little 2 year old baby girl. I was gearing up to go to war. I was scared. Everybody just stood still. Like the world stopped moving for a day. I am not a very religious person, but every night before bed, I say a silent prayer for the victim's and thier families. My heart belongs to those people and the heros of 9/11. God Bless You All.

I Remember sep 11 2001 in two ways, first at 4:00 AM my wife went into labor with our second son Zackery Tyler Wellman. He was born at 6:35 on that terrible day; second I was in the recovery room with my wife when the attack on the twin towers started. I was so happy on one hand and I was shocked and appalled on the other it is still very confusing.

I was in my third week of a new job.. High School Teacher. I had already heard of the World Trade Center bombings before class started. One of the kids printed a picture of the pentagon smoking and brought it up to me. I knew then that America was definately under attack. To see the symbol of defense smoldering sent a terrible feeling through me. That day was also my 30th birthday.

Blessed Be!
I feel like all who have died are like family and I morn for their lives and souls that were so wrongfully taken away from their loved ones. I only hope that we will never have to go through this ignorant loss o f souls again. I just wish that the whole world could put aside our difference and think about working together to solve a problem. I know that morning I woke to find out what had happened. I know that if that was my husband, son, grandmother,etc...I would be so full of emotions. I will always remember the people of 9/11 and be greatful everyday that I can wake up and see my family again....
Blessed be!
