9/11 The Names

It’s been 14 years.

Audio is from a speech President Bush made a few days after, on September 14, 2001. The flag is waving through everyone of the names of those who died on September 11, 2001.

I was working the early shift in the stockroom at Hickory Hollow Target in Nashville. We came up to the break room for “lunch” right as the first plane hit. We watched the 2nd one a few minutes later on a little 13″ TV. We were told that if anyone wanted to go on home, they could. I stayed. It was an eerie, quiet day. Almost no one in the store. We turned one of the TV’s in electronics to a local news station. People were just staring in unbelief.




Remembering September 11, 2001

I was sitting here, a decade later, looking at video of the terrorist attack that changed America. It still brings tears.

This weekend we are doing a big service, complete with the story of a police sergeant who was there. I felt bad cutting out parts of his story to make it fit into a service. I will post his entire story later, but for this weekend we have his story and another piece I actually made nine years ago.

The flag waves through the names of every person who was killed on September 11, 2001. The audio is part of a speech by President Bush on September 14, 2001.
