How I Remember 9/11

I remember the fall morning of September 11, 2001 very clearly, I had just gotten back from walking my dog,Rusty, when I faintly heard the newscaster on the TV  upstairs talking about the Pentagon.  My wife yelled, "Mike, turn on the TV! The Pentagon has been hit!" I immediately turned on the family room TV.  They had talked about the twin towers of the world trade center being hit.  I had no idea at the time what date it was.  911 was known as the emergency telephone number or an expression of a calamity.  How ironic or coincidental that this date would be tied to an event that was just that.  It was a continuous chain of events that would claim thousands of lives and  seemed to threaten the very existence of all we value.
