September 11th 2001 -- Personal Statement

September 11, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Fifteen years ago today I went to sleep with the sound of the occasional cop car or 911 vehicle going by and thought nothing of it. I heard the sound of planes going overhead either on approach or taking off from one of the surrounding airports/military bases...
I never worried about family or friends when they traveled... And I had started to believe that people of the #Islam faith were just normal people who wanted a better life.

Tuesday September 11th, 2001
I woke-up early and figured I'm up might as well go to Daily Mass, 
Which as most of you know is unusual for me (both getting up early and going to Daily Mass)................
I got to Blessed Sacrament and the "morning hens" were doing the#SorrowfulMysteries... (Ok it Tuesday that works)
Around 6:50 a cell phone goes of and I'm like ok fine someone forgot to turn their phone of....Then SEVERAL start to go off.
Father STOPS MASS....Now I'm freaking out because that is a sign that something is majorly wrong.
He (Father) makes a quick announcement then leaves.
I call my Mother, and My Sister who I thought were both traveling that day...... At first no luck but I got ahold of them.
I head home and out of the blue the sky is filled with Police and Military vehicles... Every cop in the county was out and the Flags were at half-staff
I was like "WTF" is going on?
I found out when I got home... For the first time in almost SEVENTY YEARS a foreign power attacked us on our home soil. Needless to say I was pissed....
-------------------------------
Ever since that Tuesday Fifteen Years AGO I have always worried about friends and family when they travel
Have though what now when I see more than one cop car or emergency responded dispatched. Look up to actually track the planes when they are going over...
And thanks to the #PeopleOfIslam who attacked us I WILL NEVER THINK OF A #MUSLIM AS A #HUMANBEING AGAIN....
