Kansas City Remembers 9/11

The Morning of 9/11/2001

Chicago IL

I am a Flight Attendant for United Airlines, and was at the time of the attacks on the United States. I was on vacation, and was up late the night before. That morning I was sleeping in, and my phone started ringing, and ringing, and ringing. I thought, oh no, there must have been a plane crash. So I answered the phone call from my mom, who told me to, "turn on the tv." I did, and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Images of my company's airplane flying into the WTC. I was sick at the thought of my Flying Partners and the customers in their care, being slaughtered, using my workplace as a weapon. This weekend I honor all those innocent people who were killed that day, and all the heroes that came out of that horrible event.
