On the 5th anniversary of 9/11/01, I posted the story of where I was when I heard the news, and what the day was like for me and the people around me. I took it from the content of older posts on a message board, posts that were written right on the day itself, so I know that they're not memories that were colored or changed by the passage of time.
Here is the post. It's LONG. But on this date every year, I feel like it's something I need to say. It's my way of ensuring that we Never Forget.
