My world did STOP for a little while. I was in a church service when I found out. It was a church service at a private Christian college. Many of the students had family in NY and I had a mother in the area. It was scary and our world did STOP for a little bit. All the phone lines were down and we could not get in touch with our love ones. Yes, my world has gone on... BUT it did stop for a while. I was part of the group that wondered if I was going to see my love ones again. . . .
The song is a beautiful song and does a great job of expressing the emotions during that time. I remember the fear and I remember the generosity of the American Spirit. I remember the folks lining up to give blood. EVERYONE was giving blood. America was immobilized, paralyzed for a short time. What was truly amazing is how we dealt with the situation. We could of became a bitter and angry people. Instead, we came together to help each other.
I don't want to go any further with this post because I don't want to give any trolls material to get started with. The long and short of the response - Is YES I remember where I was. Yes, my world did stop turning for a short period of time. Yes, I think America is great and did a great job of coming together after this tragedy!
