Let us never forget. Where were you? Please share! I was visiting my sister on the east coast. We had gone into Boston to go shopping that morning. I remember my brother-in-law calling us and telling us to get out of the city and head home immediately. We turned on the news on the radio and couldn't believe what we were hearing. I remember the sounds of the sirens heading into downtown so clearly. So many lives changed that day. #nineeleven #neverforget #wherewereyou
I love these thoughts so much. I remember the feeling of utter sorrow and grief mixed with the feelings of a unified nation. There was a love between people that was indescribable. If only we could all remember. Really remember. ♥️ 🇺🇸
I still get emotional. Talked about it with my students today and the images and feelings rushed back. #neverforget #whentheworldstoppedturning #trueheroes
We will never forget. ❤️ I pray this baby girl will never have to experience the kind of horror that 9-11 brought, but she will absolutely learn in the years to come about what that day meant for our beautiful country and all of those innocent people who lost their lives. We will always, always, always remember. God bless the USA. 🇺🇸 #patriotday #september11 #america #neverforget #whentheworldstoppedturning #landthatilove #charliekate #redwhiteandblue

Here are some Red, White, and Blue shots that I have taken over the last few months. These colors represent so much in different ways but today they remind us a time that changed our world. Today we remember those who lost their lives in the Twin Towers and to those first responders who died sacrificing their lives trying to save people’s lives🇺🇸 • #9/11memorial #twintowersnyc #whentheworldstoppedturning #whentheworldstopped #twintowersmemorial #adaytoremember #redwhiteandblue #35wbridge #firstresponders #firefighters #police #lowrybridge #worldtradecentermemorial #9/11/2001
In remembrance for the 9/11 attacks that happened 18 years ago, today, I’m posting @officialalanjackson’s song Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning), in which Jackson wrote about the attack years ago. Y’all can put your stories below, or what this song means to you, or where you were at on the day “the world stopped turning”. #neverforget #newyork #911attack #september11th #alanjackson #officialalanjackson #wherewereyou #whentheworldstoppedturning #countrymusic #18yearsago #remember #wherewereyouwhentheworldstoppedturning
Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day? .........did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer and then look at yourself and what really matters. . I know Jesus and I talk to God and I remember this from when I was young Faith, Hope and Love are some good things He gave us and the greatest of these is Love. ~ Alan Jackson . . Where were you on that fateful day? My sister and I were in Canada. We had just finished a 10 day hiking and camping trip through Banff, Jasper and Yoho. We were supposed to fly home September 11. Thankful for our Canadian neighbors and their hospitality. We were able to fly home six days later. . . #wewillneverforget #remember911🇺🇸 #longlivecowboys #thankfulforlife #whentheworldstoppedturning #ilovemycountry❤️ #godblesstheusa🇺🇸

I was asleep, and my mother woke me up scared out of her mind. I remember watching the news reels all day in school.... the silence was something else... where were you? #cantforget #neverforget #ourdayofinfamy #wewerekids #notanymore #whatdoyoustandfor #united #ourland #american #patriot #groundzero #combatvet #veteran #wherewereyou #whentheworldstoppedturning

Truly heart wrenching to feel what these people went through knowing their inevitable fate. #neverforget #whentheworldstoppedturning
It’s days like today when we need to realize just how truly blessed we are. We need to focus on being kind to one another and stop taking little things for granted. Life is a GIFT! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We need to stop hating each other based on political views or what we believe in or how we choose to live our lives. We need to stop living life unhappy and miserable. We need to stop all the negativity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Guys life is SHORT! We are not promised tomorrow. We have no idea what our future holds. This day reminds me of that every single year. And how has is been 18 years already? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s easy to lose sight of what really matters when life gets crazy. So today I’m choosing to be THANKFUL💗 I hope you are too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Drop below what you’re most thankful for👇🏼
It was once said “ As more and more time passes, people will begin treating every day after 9/11 as though it was 9/10 and sleep ignorant to the evil that exist in this world” We cannot forget ..... #911 #whentheworldstoppedturning #firstresponders #america #neverforget #marines #army #airforce #navy #coastguard #specialforces

”Where were you when the world stopped turnin' That September day? Were you in the yard with your wife and children Or workin' on some stage in L.A.? Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke Risin' against that blue sky? Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor Or did you just sit down and cry? Did you weep for the children, they lost their dear loved ones Pray for the ones who don't know? Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble And sob for the ones left below? Did you burst out with pride for the red, white, and blue And the heroes who died just doin' what they do? Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer And look at yourself and what really matters? I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a real political man I watch CNN, but I'm not sure I can tell you The diff'rence in Iraq and Iran But I know Jesus and I talk to God And I remember this from when I was young Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us And the greatest is love.” ~Alan Jackson, Where Were You ᨏ↟ Codes: @stormintags - StorminMerleandMal @blackforesthounds - MERMALFOREST ᨏ↟ ᨏ↟ #miniaussie #wherewereyou #whentheworldstoppedturning #dog #dogs #aussie #australianshepherd #choosemountains

I will never forget that day. I got up for school, the eighth grade, and mom had the tv on. She was full of sadness. At 13, I couldn't quite understand what was happening. Every teacher at school that day had the tv on. There would be no curriculum taught. That day affected me. I had never seen so much tragedy. So much sadness. I couldn't wrap my head around how someone could do something so horrific. . . I have a box filled with newspapers about that day. The People magazine issue from this tragedy. It is a day I will never forget. The day I knew I would always be an American and stand up for this country. It was a day I saw so many come together as one. A day I saw heroes give their lives for others without a second thought. So many lives were lost that day. 💔🇺🇸. .

Today we take time to remember and acknowledge the lives that were lost and the courageous first responders who gave their lives saving others. Never forget. 🇺🇸 #september112001 #911 #911memorial #firstresponders #whentheworldstoppedturning #godblessamerica #prayforpeace
I will never forget waking up to my mom screaming and crying as loud as she could in the living room. I had stayed home from school that day because I was sick. I came in the room and saw the TV and somehow I knew at only 13 that things were never going to be the same. My mom frantically called the school to tell my brother to come home and then she was weeping as she was trying to reach my dad because he was traveling and we had no idea if he was safe. That day showed the whole entire world how things can change in a split second and how Satan can wreak absolute havoc in innocent lives. But God. He is so much bigger and always is there to wipe away every tear. In the biggest storms He is our safe place. I hope today that you will take time to pray over all 3,000 victims and those they left behind. Pray for our country. Pray against the enemy. Pray for people to truly live and love like it’s their last day on earth. We will never forget what this day taught us! 💗🙏🏻 God bless the USA 🇺🇸 🙌🏻 . . . #NaSHEville #911 #neverforget #wherewereyou #whentheworldstoppedturning
“WE WILL NEVER FORGET”. . . . I was sitting in English class just settling down at my computer in the computer lab. The announcement comes over the intercom of the school, “ The twin towers have hit, our nation is under attack”. I’m a junior in HS and we are all confused, not really listening, and I was thinking they were re enacting something that happened years ago. But, I was wrong. I sudden feel of panic came over me. • Here I was just a HS kid in the middle of Kansas who is from New Jersey and all our family still lived there. I remember my dad being a mess as he tried to get a hold of EVERYONE we knew and couldn’t. • I walked in the sliding glass door of my house just as the 2nd tower was being hit and watched it with tears in my eyes and listening to my dad screaming.• • We were under attack. • The rest of the day was somewhat of a blur after that.• • At about 6:00 am on September 12, 2001, our house phone rang and it was my Aunt Pat on the other line, “Missy, it’s Aunt Pat. Joe was in flight 93, I need to talk to your dad”. I remember jumping out of bed, and running the phone to my dad.• • Joe DeLuca was link between my parents and my family. Joe and Cars is what brought my parents together really. I vaguely remember him. But I definitely know the legacy he left behind and the stories my family tells.• • We will NEVER forget!. “Let’s Roll”. #neverforget #911 #flight93
#wherewereyou #whentheworldstoppedturning #alanjackson If you ever listen to just 1 song I recommend to you, please make it this one. A fantastic piece of song writing, about a very difficult subject. I'm not ashamed to say, that it makes me cry every time I hear it. For all the people who died that day, and especially for all the heroes who helped people escape, this is dedicated to you. #9/11 #september11 #neverforget🇺🇲
#alwaysremembered❤️ #neverforget #honortheheroes #rememberingthefallen #911 #patriotday🇺🇸 #whentheworldstoppedturning #tellyourstorywithtasha My story: I was a college student full of optimism and a vision for a bright future. I had more freedom than I had ever had in my life. That day I thought for just a short moment that may have been taken from me. But it was not. I still have it all. #unitedwestand #strongertogether #americanpride🇺🇸 #redwhiteandblue
As we all remember where we were and what we were doing the exact moment when the world stopped turning on that September day when 9/11 struck... It is so hard to ever imagine all of the lives that were impacted. When I took my children there in 2002 to visit my family for Christmas , The twin towers my grandfather helped build the year I was born in 1973 were no longer there.... name after name after name and although I try to educate my children , there are no words for the loss our country felt on that day. #neverforgotten #whentheworldstoppedturning #freedom #thatseptemberday #devastation #loveoneanother #united #proudarmymom 💚💯
may i never take one single second for granted .. 😔 #neverforget
That Best friend for a lifetime is nothing to take for granted.. that person that always gives you the benefit of the doubt.. laughs with you, celebrates with you, grieves with you.. watches your successes & failures with a prayerful heart & holds your hand when everyone walks away.. THAT person who doesn’t have to call everyday.. but you know is there.. the one that tells you straight up when you’re wrong & laughs when you look shocked.. & you go on, hand in hand. The one God dropped in on you unexpectedly & graced you with faithful, compassionate, enduring friendship.. love them.. they are a gem!!! Love you my friend!! @debpancoast #whentheworldstoppedturning #together #wearebettertogether #friends #bff #faithful #true #love
No words to explain how moving this experience was! #911 #whentheworldstoppedturning #starstakeflight #starlovealways #thesurvivortree
Something that’s been on my bucket list was to go back & see the 9/11 memorial. I may have been young, but I was old enough to understand that that was a day that will forever remain etched in history. It hits close to home because I was living in NJ at the time, not far outside NYC. - They did a great a job on the memorial. It’s definitely a MUST SEE if you ever get the chance but it’s quite overwhelming. I was speechless. - Never Forget 9/11 ❤️ - - #911memorial #september11 #NYC #manhattan #whentheworldstoppedturning

17 years ago, I woke up to a different world. . I was surrounded by family and our life was forever changed 💔 in a lot of ways that I'm not sure the world will ever know. . Aiden, I pray you never have to experience firsthand the evil that STILL does exist. . But I also pray that you learn to not simply live in fear. 🙏 Doing so only gives that evil power and stops us from conquering our goals. . You come from a long line of patriots [on both sides] 🇺🇸 and I cannot wait to teach you how to live.
Every year since 2001 this day has always hard to sum up. I remember being a freshman in high school gym class when the news broke. The rest of the day was spent going from classroom to classroom as each period passed glued to the TV and the events that were unfolding. I was just in complete shock on so many different levels and was left thinking: How is this happening right now? How does anyone have so much hate in their soul to follow through with something so hellacious as this? What about the survivors- how are they going to handle this? What resources are out there for those who lost their loved ones? What can I do? How can I help? And ever year these questions continue to run through my mind. Its burned and engraved into my memory. I will never forget. #september11 #neverforget #america #wherewereyou #whentheworldstoppedturning
