My memories of September 11, 2001

I remember this day as if it was yesterday because of how terrible it was. I lost several friends at the Pentagon and one friend at the World Trade Center who was trying to build a better life for their family. I woke up that day to my wife showing me the news and our crappy apartment watching the second plane crash into the twin towers. At the time, I had no idea what was going on or even that I knew some people who just lost their lives. All I knew is I didn’t want to leave my family and I felt like even though I needed the money I should skip work that day. I ended up going to work and Keisa went to the food bank to get is a food box to support us and our unborn child.

We survived that day which was terrible for so many people and for that I feel grateful. I wish there was something I can do to turn back the clock and undo the attacks. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything I can do and these events are just a bad memory. This is possibly the third worst day of my life and every anniversary I crave alcohol to escape the reality of what happened. I’m sorry for the loss of my friends and so many innocent people that also passed away that day, but there’s nothing I can do to change it. Rest in peace and hopefully one day all of those who brought your demise will be brought to justice or freaking shot in the head for being such terrible people.
