Never Forget 9/11

September 11, 2001

Before September 11th, we would wake up with a list of “Don’t Forgets”
Don’t forget to wash your face
Don’t forget to brush your teeth
Don’t forget to do your homework
Don’t forget to wear your jacket
Don’t forget to clean your room
Don’t forget to take a bath

After September 11th, we wake up with a list of “Remembers”
Remember to greet the sun each morning
Remember to enjoy every meal
Remember to thank your parents for their hard work
Remember to honor those who keep you safe
Remember to value each person you meet
Remember to respect other’s beliefs


On that day I was stationed At a photolab on Cinclant Fleet base in Norfolk VA, the details are vague, we were just told to turn on the news. We had this tiny 13″ inch tv that me and 3 other sailors stood by and watched in disbelief. The base was locked down, we couldn’t leave ,it was just mass confusion. I still had a few family members that lived in the city so my first instinct was to find out if they were ok, so many what ifs, I worked across from the Pentagon a few years prior just what if? I didn’t know anyone who personally lost someone that day but it felt like I did.. I’ll never forget. What were you doing on that day?
