    September 11, 2001
    I remember I was getting breakfast together and listening to the morning news, there was a breaking news alert that a small plane had hit the World Trade Center.....more news to follow.
    I remember a clear blue sky without a plane in the air and candlelight vigils with flight crews in uniforms representing carriers from all over the world.
    I remember my friends.

    My husband knew one of the FA killed that day. I was away from home helping my sister on the east coast and I will always remember turning on the news right after I got the kids off to school and racing to assure everyone that I was okay and on the ground. We will never forget.

    Default Remembering 9/11

    9/11/01

    “I see water, I see buildings. I see buildings! We are flying low.
    We are flying very, very low. We are flying way too low.
    Oh my God we are flying way too low.
    *very slow, deep breath*
    On my God”
    (American Airlines Flight 11 crashes)
    --Madeline “Amy” Sweeney - American Airlines Flight Attendant

    (Her last words on the in-flight phone call with Michael Woodward, AA flight services
    manager)

    A day to remember that extraordinary heroes are often disguised as ordinary people and that spirit and soul are unbreakable
