Country singer Trisha Yearwood recently shared a post on Facebook where she talked about her memories of that fateful day.
She wrote that she was preparing to shoot a video that morning when her mom called her.
She sounded…different. I immediately knew something was wrong. She said, “We’re being attacked.” She was crying and frantic...
Trisha turned on the TV immediately and saw the chaos that was going on. The first thing that came to her mind was her husband Garth who was in New York at the time. She frantically began trying to reach him because bad cell service made phone calls that day almost impossible.
Garth eventually reached her to let her know he was okay. Trisha talked about the chaos in the air as the world watched.
We were all in shock and just really didn’t understand what was happening and why someone would do this.
The country singer praised first responders and other people who showed incredible bravery at such a dark time. While sharing the lessons she learned from the ordeal, she said that she was most inspired by the nation's ability to unite when things seemed to be falling apart.
Never forget. Love one another.
Some people reacted to her post and a few also shared their own unique experiences.
There's no doubt that this day was a monumental one and the hope is that no tragedy of such magnitude will occur again.
