BEFORE MY HUSBAND RETIRED HE WORKED FOR THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT. MANY TIMES HIS WORK TOOK HIM TO THE PENTAGON. ON THAT DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET MY SON CALLING FROM COLLEGE WONDERING WHERE HIS DAD WAS WORKING. I WAS RELIEVED TO TELL HIM HE WAS CLOSING HIS OFFICE IN NORFOLK AND WOULD SHORTLY BE HOME.

I have a friend who was living in New York City at the time. She had a friend that worked in the Twin Towers...thankfully, he was late to work that morning. We will NEVER forget and may your candle never extinguish...

A tragic day in our country's history. I'm glad your husband was safe.

I will always remember. I was pregnant 3 months with my first baby - nobody knew what is going on - we just knew we are under attack...

What a relief for your son to find his Dad was safe.
No, I will never forget.

I think the memory of this event - powerful in any case - has so much more meaning when it's shadow has fallen so close to one you love. I'm glad your husband was safely away from the horror. I wish we had not been lead in the wrong direction by our leaders of the time, who I think took something horrendous and made it more awful. Lovely post.

How good to know your husband was safe. It was a sad day in the history of mankind. Here in Canada we never forget either.

It was a day that changed the world. It will never be forgotten. That's a lovely photo.

My husband was in D.C. at the time, at the FAA building. We lived in the suburbs of Chicago, but his job was in D.C. He would travel home every two weeks for the weekend. I was very scared for him. Then when FAA grounded all planes I didn't know when he would be able to come home. It was a very, very scary time.
