Where Were You The Day The World Stood Still?

Remembering 9-11

It was a day in American history that would reveal both the worst of humanity and the best!

I see the words “Never Forget” posted everywhere and I have to say it leaves a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Please don’t misunderstand, I really do get why people are posting it.  It helps with the pain to stand together in remembrance.

But that’s not the part that is tugging at my spirit today.

I couldn’t find the words to explain how I felt until my friend Crystal from The Thrifty Mama shared a post on Facebook last year:

Everyone has a story to tell of the day that would forever change the landscape of our world both figuratively and literally.

I invite you to join other Saving Dollars and Sense readers in sharing your 9-11 stories.

  1. I was living in California and getting ready to leave to take my daughter to school and then head to work. I originally thought the radio DJ was being a bit dramatic. Living in a Metropolis and being used to hearing planes and helicopters all the time, I have to say that was the really eerie thing, no air traffic for days. My heart goes out to all those affected by loss from those terrible events that day.
