I saw the video this morning, memories flashed, I found my notes. This is for all the heroes including victims and families. Sending out big hugs.
Notes I made as horror unfolds.
The face of America and the free world has changed. America is under attack by terrorist. Four planes hijacked, two planes crashed in to both World Trade Center buildings. Not long after a plane crashed in to Pentagon and one crashed in field in Pennsylvania. Both towers fell to ruble, a shocking sight. As the buildings crash the air looked like a volcano. Fatalities are high. The fire’s rage on at Pentagon. We learned plane crashed in PA targeting White House. Airforce One possible target, no information on how.
The second day airspace locked down. The reaction from around the world is amazing. Even China has provided their support in the event of war. We have committed to use what ever means we have to fight terrorist. Bomb threat for Empire State, bomb dogs picked up a positive reading. Manhattan is a war zone. Several buildings evacuated, no other incidents.
I’m embarrassed by the people who deface Mosque.
So many not displaying flag.
Doesn’t seem right to turn television off. It’s so hard to process what happened this week.
What’s financial impact, how devastating ?
I heard my first helicopter since Tuesday. My mind flashed, how would Dallas respond? Do we have the protection needed?
It’s been a week, so much accomplished. No one found alive since last Wednesday.
Troops on alert including reservist. 5,432 people still missing. Afghanistan has launched a Holy War. What’s Holy about war?
The war is now called Operation Infinite Justice. The order signed for troops to move, no details. As many as 150 aircraft staging. Tomorrow ground troops get orders.
It is hard to watch families say goodbye as troops head out.
