As we mark the 16th anniversary of the vilest terror attacks on American soil, we can’t help but remember where we were, what we were doing, and how we felt when we learned a plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
We were all watching the news, stunned, disbelieving what was happening at the twin towers, when Flight 77 whisked across the skyline of our Nation’s capital and crashed into the western façade of the Pentagon, causing death, destruction and a mass evacuation of government buildings, landmarks and public spaces. As we watched the events of that dark day unfold, we were awestruck, horrified, and left without words. For Tennesseans Bob Weaver and Mary Morgan Ketchel, however, it was all too real. As America was under attack, they were in the Capitol building amidst palpable fright, chaos, and confusion. Read their recollections of that day at the link below.
Where were you? What were you doing? Share your memories of that day in the comments.
