9/11: 20 Years Later

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since 9/11. For me, this day was especially painful because my fiancé had just been murdered two days prior (on my birthday).

I remember hearing the news of the World Trade Center attacks and rushing to the tv to see the actual towers crumble right before my eyes. The feeling of grief & terror is still memorable all these years later.

Thousands of innocent everyday people died and the world ultimately changed overnight. Tensions rose to an all time high and shortly after the US waged war on the Middle East sending the US economy into economic decline and recession.

There are tons of conspiracy theories surrounding this infamous day. Where were you on September 11, 2001? Do you think the “war on terror” has been won? Why or why not?

Leave me a comment & let me know what you think.

WATCH: History Channel’s 9/11 Timeline 

No matter your age, September 11, 2001 will probably be a day you will never – ever forget. 

I remember making it in front of the television to the sheer horror of the second plane collision. I would liken the unforgettable spectacle to a horror movie, but it was REAL and totally surreal.

All walks of life were lost and/or tremendously affected by the attack on New York. No one felt safe. 

‘9/11’ facilitated and forever changed the conversation about terrorism in the United States. 

Rest in Peace to all of the innocent lives lost on this unforgettable day in history. Do you know anyone directly affected by the Twin Towers or Pentagon attacks?
