Remembering 9/11- By Allen Eppenberger




 It’s been eleven years now since the World Trade Center attack.  While physical evidence of the wounds have healed, some mental healing takes time.

Back in 2001, I was working nights until 11:00 pm.  The internet was only a few years old, and still a playground for me.  I’d be on until roughly 1 am, and fall into bed, and sleep until about 10 am the next morning.  My radio would be my alarm clock those days.  As I was stirring that morning, I vaguely sleepily questioned why I was getting news rather than music at that time.  Something about airplanes, and towers, and lampposts being
sheared off in Washington.  As I laid there, I slowly listened to the descriptions of the horrors that had happened as I slept.

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.
