9/11 Memorial -I will Always Remember and Never Forget -Lanai Jarrico Reporting...


September 11, 2001 is a day in American History that stopped the world in a gasp as an attack on America played out on every News station. I can still remember that morning clearly as I was getting my little girl ready for kindergarten. I got a call from my husband who was at work. He asked me to turn on the news. I watched in horror as smoke was billowing out of the first tower hit as the news was unfolding. It was Flight 11. 

As I watched, I saw the second plane; Flight 175 hit the second tower. Terrified by what I was seeing,  I was afraid to take my daughter to school or even leave the house for fear of more attacks.  

By 9:37am Flight 77 crashed through the Pentagon.  At 9:59am, the South tower collapsed followed by Flight 93 crashing into an empty field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:02am.

 Then the North tower collapsed by 10:28am. It felt like everything was happening at once. 

 All I could see was a cloud of dust and debris that covered NYC and damaged surrounding buildings.  People were confused and frantic running for their lives covered in white dust.  It was the most terrifying thing I have ever witnessed on live tv. I stood in silence with my mind going a million miles an hour. What was happening? How could this be a coincidence? I had family who lived in Manhattan and worked close to the towers. Were they safe? Almost 3,000 people lost their lives that day. 

 I spent the next hours and days flipping through different news channels while reporters were trying to make sense of what was going on In NYC, PA and the Pentagon in Washington DC.

Shockwaves from this horrific event in our history carried on around the world for weeks, then months and even years later the magnitude of those days still haunts the lives of everyone who was affected.

 About 7 months after the attacks, I took a trip to ground zero. It was eerie. Sadness permeated the whole area. It was surreal as I walked around.  There were thousands of pictures, posters, balloons, flowers and stuffed animals on the fences that surrounded the gaping hole where the twin towers once stood. I was consumed with emotion. The adjacent building was shrouded in safety tarps with scars from the flying debris. I remember looking at a large mangled steel beam that resembled a cross. It was a time in history that changed us all, the war on terrorism was born. This is something I will always remember and will never forget.

9/11 Memorials and Events In Second Life


Today is the 20th anniversary of the horrible terror attacks of 9/11/2001.  It is hard to believe it has been two decades since the world stood still and watched in horror as one plane hit, then the second hit collapsing the world trade center to rubble in of Manhattan, NYC, and then the other assaults on the Pentagon and plane crash in Pennsylvania that was heading to the capital. What chaos and fear it brought us but also courage came out of that horrific attack against us.

I remember that day clearly.  I was doing my 5-year-old daughter’s hair in little pigtails getting her ready for PM kindergarten.  I got a phone call to turn on the news. I stood in horror as smoke was coming from one of the towers and watched live as the second plane hit. I was horrified as the buildings collapsed one after the other into a heap of dust and debris right before my eyes. I had a cousin that worked in tower two but was not there that day. 

 I was glued to the TV  and did not take my child to school for fear of other attacks.. I was in a state of shock just like many Americans and others around the world.  That day is burned in my memory just like many who can account for what they were doing at that moment our country was under attack.  My heart sank for every family who lost their loved ones.

Together we began the healing process and stood by the words “Always remembered, never forgotten “ Year after Year we observed this day in memory of the many who lost their lives and have suffered illnesses as a direct result of the dust. From people just doing their job to first responders, military personal, and everyone who volunteered and donated their time and money to help rebuild. Thank you.

In Second Life, many across the grid are observing the day by visiting memorials and attending events so residents can continue to always remember and never forget. 

Below are some memorials to visit:

Observing 9/11 in Second Life- Dedicated to those who fell and to those who carry on ©- Orchids Zenovka Reporting…

September 11th is the 252nd day of the year (253rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 113 days remaining until the end of the year. But there were some who did not get to see them.

Remembering :
The September 9/11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks upon the United States in New York City and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Four passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 terrorists so they could be flown into buildings in suicide attacks. Two of those planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within two hours, both towers collapsed with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the WTC complex, as well as major damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense), leading to a partial collapse in its western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was targeted at Washington, D.C.,[2] but crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. In total, almost 3,000 people died in the attacks, including the 227 civilians and 19 hijackers aboard the four planes. It also was the deadliest incident for firefighters in the history of the United States.

9/11 was observed across the Second Life Grid

September 11th marked the day, the world stood still and we all witnessed a horrific act upon many, who lost their lives that day.  It affected each one of us in some way and It evoked not only fear, sadness and anger, to sent shockwaves around the globe.

This event has also brought about a great courage that was witnesses by all on that day, as firefighters raced up the towers in a selfish act of helping others and losing their lives along with many husbands, wives, daughters, sons, mothers and fathers. Most of us can remember exactly where we were or what we were doing at the moment they got the news.
