Remembering 9/11

Melissa B. Merkler, EIC

It’s hard to believe the horrible act of September 11, now burned into my brain forever, happened 13 years ago. I can still remember where I was and the feeling that came over me as I watched the towers go up in flames on live TV. Heartbreak. Sadness. Fear. Disbelief. The same feelings still engulf my mind when I see the images or really *think* about what happened on American soil.

Around the nation today, flags fly at half staff in honor of all those lost in the tragic day.

Do you remember where you were when the Twin Towers became an iconic memory? Some readers might be too young to really grasp how horrific the scene was of people jumping from a burning building to their death hundreds of feet below. Of course, taking one glance at the numerous AP images will give any viewer chills.
