It's hard to believe it's been 11 years. I remember every detail of that day so vividly. Without question the most frightening day of my life. I will never forget the things that I saw.

God Bless America. Keep us safe and strong.

It was such a horrible and senseless tragedy.
As everyone was receiving word of what was happening, they started turning on TVs/radios to watch or listen as events unfolded.

Those of us in America will never forget where they were and what they were doing at that time. As Patty said, it's etched in our minds forever. The sympathy and outpouring from many nations around the world was incredible.

For myself, it became a contant reminder of how fragile life really is as I started to recall the day President Kennedy was killed. 9/11 affected many more on a personal level, but nonetheless, that day in November 1963 is one I'll never forget either. It didn't matter what a person's political affiliation was, all eyes were glued to TVs/radio and the mourning of such a senseless murder began.

Despite all that, we in America have much to be thankful for as we pause and ponder how many in the war-torn countries manage to survive the daily violence that happens year after year after year.

My thoughts echo those of so many of the above posters. I particularly like the first one:

"It feels like forever ago.

It feels like yesterday."

God Bless America!

I remember all the terror and horror of that day. I also remember how our country came together in the days and weeks that followed. We realized what was really important. All those differences and conflicts we deal with in our daily lives seemed so trivial by comparison.

The best thing we can do in remembrance and tribute to all those who lost their lives, or whose lives have been forever changed, is to try to live kinder lives, accepting others, no matter what their "differences" are.
