Ten years ago, on a beautiful sunny morning, the USA and the world were forever changed when terrorist struck the Twin Towers in NYC. I think that everyone who was old enough to remember, remembers where they were when it all went down.

Shortly after September 11, 2001, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alan Jackson[/lastfm] wrote a song about it titled “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning).” He first performed it live on the CMA Awards and it went on to spend five weeks on top of the country chart.

    I like the above article but the terrorists also struck in Washington, D.C. and PA. For some reason people only remember or refer to the NYC attacks. Many lives were also lost and changed forever that day at the Pentagon and in a field in PA. God bless those that lost their lives that beautiful September day, and the loved ones they left behind who had to cope with such a terrible and horrific loss.
