I haven’t seen these pictures in years.  In fact, there are only a few people that have actually seen them at all. I took them 10 years ago today with a disposable camera as I fled from the collapsing South World Trade Center Tower.  I don’t even have these pictures in my possession anymore.  My uncle scanned them in for me and emailed them over yesterday.  The order is a little off.  The order goes: Top right, Top left, bottom right, bottom left.  It was by far and away the worst day of my life, and even though I was fortunate not to have lost anyone close to me, I still have nightmares to this day.  Not sure why I’m even posting these now – I don’t really have anything profound to say here.  I think what happened 10 years ago has a different meaning for everybody.  Just figured I’d share.

And in what way the story unfolds gradually increasing the stress yet still time treading on that thin line between dark and light-weight, good and evil, is merely amazing how that has been carried out regards to sentimentality Ripley ,missed her daughters birthday because fate was cruel to her considering the circumstances of her floating out into space for 57 years, after she escaped from the Nostramo.

    I was in classe at college at the time. I remember after my first class seeing it on the tv, and and some of my other professors we there also. I told them I was going to miss class that day because I was in the Guard at the time. They said good luck, and I left and went to my armory. It was almost noon when I got there, and I was one of the last people to actually get there. We all thought we were going to get orders that day. Turns out it took almost a month for that to happen.

    Crazy. I remember being in class, watching TV and seeing the second plan crash into the tower. Couldn’t believe it.

    Thanks for sharing Jimmy.

    I remember I was on Fort Leonardwood and all I could think is, “I’m going to war, and I’m going to kill some mother fuckers…”

    History Channel has been running 9/11 stuff all morning. Very powerful. I almost don’t want to turn it off. I was living in MD at the time, so I wasn’t impacted first hand, but I do remember there being kids in my school who had parents that worked at the Pentagon. I think everyone was ok though.

    Thanks for sharing this Jimmy. I also have nightmares about by the event to this day. I was in my 5th grade math class when the school used the PA system for the first time since I had been in that school and they told us to come to the auditorium. I remember seeing my mom running down the street to pick me up from school and I had no idea what was going on. Then I walked down the street and saw the huge clouds of smoke filling the sky. I will never forget. God bless those that gave their lives for us and our country and those that continue to fight to protect this country.
