Tuesday is the 17th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the twin towers in New York City, The Pentagon in Washington and the crash in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. I will probably never erase the memory of the second plane that flew in the twin towers. I was not watching TV to see the first plane go in. I was on the air on KGNC-FM, Mary Lyn Halley and I both watched the second plane go it. At that point we both knew something terrible was happening. The initial news report said that a Cessna flew into the building, boy was it wrong. Many of us will never forget that morning or the events that took place in the days, months and years following. Just looking at the picture on the top of this page makes me very sad and very angry. Please participate in our KGNC Insta-Poll….
Shane – I was a freshman in high school at Caprock In Amarillo. Even at a young age I don’t think that I quite grasped how serious the situation was. I know that older generations always told me each generation has a major event that you will always remember 9/11 is definitely mine.
I was in the Army for 12 years before this. I was working at the VA that morning. I remember feeling completely helpless and so angry. It felt like everything I had done in the military,to include Desert Shield/ Storm had been for nothing. I still remember how lost I felt that day.
Very sad I remember it well. I was in Lubbock being a flight attendant myself it still breaks my heart
I feel like my birthday has been tainted forever.
Clint – it was my 18th birthday on 9/11/01. It is a day I will never forget. It is something that I will never forget. I, like everyone else watch in horror that day, my senior year of High school in Panhandle, TX. I still pray for everyone lost and their families.
Craig – It’s sad to see how we are tearing each other down (as a nation) compared to how close we were after the events on 9/11
I still don’t know how I feel. How do you explain build #7
