I Won’t Forget That Day!

We were living in Edmond, Oklahoma and I was up and getting ready for a Bible study that began a couple of weeks earlier at our church.  We were new in the church and I really didn’t know that many ladies, but I was enjoying the study and our daughter, Patti, had volunteered to work in the child care area taking care of the babies.

I turned on the television to watch the news while I was getting dressed for the day.  As soon as I turned it on, they were showing a plane flying into a building.  I thought it was a small airplane that had accidently hit a tall building.  I stopped to watch and then another plane hit, this one looked much larger to me.  I was shocked at what I was watching.  I went to get Patti so she could see. We watched for a few minutes and then had to finish getting ready so we wouldn’t be late.  The more I watched I didn’t want to leave so we could find out what all was happening.  I wanted to skip the Bible study, but I thought it wasn’t wise for Patti not to show up for nursery duty, so we turned the t.v. off and finished getting ready and headed to the church.  Nathan, our son was at home finishing up his school work.  While at church, no one really said anything, but I couldn’t help but think about it all through Bible study and wanting to get home.  As soon as it was over, I rushed to get Patti and we went home as fast as we could. I was worried about Nathan being home alone and couldn’t wait to get back.  The rest of the day was spent watching the news coverage in total disbelief.

My heart ached for all those people that were killed that day!  It is still hard to believe that really happened to America.

  1. I was 6 months pregnant and wondering what in the world my baby was coming into. Also wondered if she would have a dad to call “dad” (he’s in Navy)….and feeling very sad and worried about that fact. In retrospect, I think I felt more concerned for my child than people who actually lost their lives. Probably natural mother instinct but oops.
