  2. […] 10 Years Isn’t an Eternity – Courtney from The Mommy Matters shares her 9/11 memories beautifully. […]

  3. Courtney says:

    It is hard to believe it’s already been ten years. I remember the details of that day vividly. I’m sure we all do.

  4. Elena says:

    You almost wrote my exact day – I was just on the other side a bit as it was my first week as a high school teacher. I’ll never forget the TV’s coming on and my class just sitting there watching. Walking down the halls, it was the quietest day I’ve ever heard in my career to this day. I still can’t believe that was 10 years ago.

  5. Cyn & Co. says:

    It’s amazing how so many of us were in the same boat; in school, watching the whole day, no lessons or lectures, just life.

    Wonderful post.

    I too was in high school and remember the silence of a normally very loud school. I cannot believe it has been 10 years. I am here from the writer’s workshop. My first week participating, very glad I have.

  7. It is amazing the different perspectives, experiences, feelings we each had on that day. Yes, I remember like it was yesterday, but life was SO different too. I experienced it away from home, away from our country and that was difficult itself, but they mourned with us and suffered too. Thank you for your perspective & story. Yes, we have to remember so we will never forget….
