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:
