9/11 Tribute Videos. Where I was. Where were you?

by Jon Pinney on September 11, 2009

Since it is now officially the 8th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11, I decided I would include a Tribute post.  I started looking through YouTube to find appropriate videos and soon found myself crying, in shock, in awe, and biting my nails as I waited to see again the second collision.  Knowing it would happen only made it worse.

On 9/11/2001 I was serving a mission for my church in the Dominican Republic.  I remember exactly where I was when I found out something had happened in America.  My companion and I couldn’t get good information until we went to a member’s house and turned on CNN.  That’s when I saw what had happened.  We watched and rewatched the footage over and over.  It was surreal.  I wish I could’ve been here in America when it happened.  I’ve been told that American Flags were displayed everywhere and that the Nation was completely United.

I was only going to include one video, but I couldn’t find just one that had everything I wanted to share.  So, I’ve included many.  Watch whichever ones you want, just make sure and remember.

If you can, please leave a comment with where you were and what you were doing that day.  You can include any feelings you had as well.
