I am watching the NATGEO 9-11 interview with President Bush. Listening to him talking about 9-11 and the people that would never forget that day. I remembered what I was doing on that day. I was asleep since I was working the evening shift at Ford Motor Company building cars and we were on overtime so I had gotten home late and was asleep. I remember getting a call from my wife after the first plane hit the tower. I turned the TV on just in time to see the second plane hit the tower. I was in shock and I knew that we were at war. I had told people for years that the terrorist would strike here because we are considered the "great satan" by the squirrels of islam. After watching the news , I had to go to work and sign in, Ford was shut down, but if I wanted to get paid, I still had to sign in. As I was driving in, there was absolutely no planes in the air, the plant was right off I-75 next to the airport. I was used to seeing and hearing airplanes all the time coming in for landing. But there was absolutely nothing in the air, and it was a bright blue sky. It was surreal.
When I see the pictures or see the footage, it still hurts for the sheer loss of life and the shock.
