I was in utter shock when the second plane hit, but the tears didnt start flowing until word came that Barbara was on the plane that hit the Pentagon. It seemed so many things were happening so fast all at once, but Barbara was that human connection I experienced while sitting in my living room at home a few thousand miles away. When they talked of how she relayed information just before it crashed, I felt like every soul lost that day was mine.
God rest BKO and the nearly 3000 others who were killed that day.
I might have to take the day off from work.
It is a defining day of my existence.
Hey, yes SF my dear best friend! you were there too! Wasn't she just the loveliest person we would ever want to meet! I agree about the human connection on 9/11. Later when we found out she was onboard one of the planes, I hoped it was not true. I have a photo of one of the memorials, and her name is on it. Such a beautiful person she was. Hope all is well with you! I love and miss you girl!
Hey how are you? Yes 9/11 weighs heavy on our hearts since we knew someone we lost that day. I also knew Tu Ahn Pham who died in the WTC on that day. Didn't know her well, but like Barbara, she was smart and nice and outgoing. May they both rest in peace! What a horror that day was!
