9/11--We will never forget
I'm sure you're like me, and remember exactly where you were that day. I was working in Cheyenne, Wyoming as a Master Control Operator at a tiny TV station. Since we were on Mountain time, we didn't show the CBS morning news live, instead it was an hour behind. I never really monitored the live feed, but for some reason, I looked behind me that day and saw it, right after the first plane hit the tower. I decided to take the live feed, and just seconds after that, the second tower was hit. For the next two weeks, I watched 8-hours of post 9/11 coverage everyday. It was awful. I cried everyday and felt overwhelmed at times.
To all the heroes from that day who ran into the building's without a moment's hesitation--thank you. Your bravery and selflessness will not be forgotten. To all the people who lost their lives that day--we honor your memories and will never forget you.
There are a lot of video tributes out there that are still too painful to watch, but I really like this one. It's a commercial Budweiser did, but only aired once so as to not make money from it. It's very touching. 9/11 Commercial
God Bless America. Be sure the hug your loved ones a little tighter today.
