17 years ago today. Matter of fact it was on a Tuesday. I was still in San Antonio and I remember hearing the news at 8:45 in the morning. Funny how you can remember the exact time from something 17 years ago. And for the rest of the day, actually the next few days all the news was about the attack. What I remember is the eerie silence for the next few days. At home work all i felt was eerie silence. Almost 3000 people died that day more than Pearl Harbor. I know we honor our war dead and rightfully so. But I try to remember those that died on 9/11. And I remember those heroic fireman and policeman who were real heroes during that time.
