OUR 9-11, NEW YORK EXPERIENCE
I’ve had so many inquiries from our friends and customers who knew we were in New York September 11th, 12th and 13th during these difficult times that I thought we should relate to you our experience.
Myself, My Daughter Teresa and her Husband John left Seattle on a red eye flight which left Seattle at 10:00 pm on September 10th and arrived in Newark at 8:05am just minutes after United flight #93 took off to it’s tragic end in a Pennsylvania field. When traveling from baggage to the Car rental area on the tram we admired the beautiful world trade center buildings not knowing that within minutes what would happen. On driving out of the rental lot we were told by the attendant that one of the towers had been hit by an airplane. As we left the airport we looked in absolute disbelief at the burning # 1 tower. The next time we could see the towers we saw a plume of smoke and fire rise from # 2 tower. I’m really glad I didn’t see the plane hit the building I think it would have been just too much.
When we reached our hotel which overlooked the Manhattan skyline it was a very tragic and sad view. People we talked to were just numb in disbelief, many actually openly crying. Soon when the first tower-crumbled Manhattan was obscured with dust and smoke, no longer visible across the water. Teresa and John had planned to be at the World trade center in Manhattan that fateful morning but thanks to a mistake on our original tickets and a change of airlines they didn’t make it.”Thank God” We were unable to get out on Tuesday because of closed roads but on the morning of the 12th we started our drive back across America with lots of time to contemplate the horrible tragedy that had just hit our wonderful country.
God Bless America and it’s wonderfully strong people who will bounce back and God have mercy on those who did this and to those who would use this to benefit themselves. And Thanks to our wonderful military troops doing such a great job and sacrifice to protect America.
