Being in Alabama, not many of us had family in the New York or DC area, but those who did fervently tried to reach family and friends. Rumors circulated on what was going to happen next - transportation all over was going to cease, gas prices would skyrocket, we wouldn't be able to get mail or food. I guess people panic when they don't know what's going on.
I worked in a grocery store at the time and we were slammed all night. Gas stations began to run out of gas as people filled up their cars and every container they had.
But we made it through. Our country survived. We are strong. It hurt, but we will never forget.
Where were you during September 11? Do you remember all the details from that day?
