The Rock Show Remembers: Where Were You Sept 11, 2001?

Capture the scene with a Long Exposure as the 9/11 remembrance tribute lights up the night sky.

IT WAS SEPT 29 2001 THAT MRS ROCKSHOW MADE AN HONEST MAN OUT OF ME. SO ON THE MORNING OF SEPT 11, 2001 SHE WAS UP EARLY DOING WEDDING STUFF. WE ARE THE TYPES WHO TURN ON THE TV IN THE MORNING BUT DON’T WATCH IT. IT’S JUST ON AND IN THE BACKGROUND. THIS MORNING WOULD PROVE TO BE DIFFERENT. WE WOULD SPEND THE NEXT HOURS, THE NEXT MONTHS GLUED TO IT. STUNNED. JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD.

I HAD THE DAY OFF THAT DAY. I WAS SLEEPING IN A LITTLE. MRS ROCKSHOW CAME IN, AND WOKE ME UP. SHE WAS COMPLETELY VOID OF COLOR IN HER FACE. I HAD NEVER SEEN HER LIKE THIS. I KNEW SOMETHING WAS VERY VERY WRONG. IT TOOK ME A SECOND TO REGISTER WHAT SHE WAS SAYING. “A PLANE JUST HIT ONE OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER TOWERS, IT’S A HUGE FIRE” AS I JUMPED UP OUT OF BED AND TURNED ON THE TV IN THE BEDROOM…….THE SECOND PLANE HIT….. AND WE ALL KNEW. THIS WAS NO ACCIDENT…… WE ARE UNDER ATTACK. WE HAVE BEEN ATTACKED….ATTACKED BY COWARDS, WITH OUR OWN PLANES, FILLED WITH INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN. MAKE NO MISTAKE. THIS IS AND WAS AN ACT OF WAR.

EVEN WITH THE GREATEST DAY OF OUR LIVES RAPIDLY APPROACHING, WE JUST COULDN’T SHAKE THE FEELING OF LOSS AND PAIN. THE DAY WENT OFF JUST AS PLANNED. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. AND IN TRUTH, WE FELT EVEN MORE BLESSED TO BE THERE WITH ALL OF OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY FOLLOWING THIS HORRIBLE TRAGEDY. IT WAS A NEEDED DISTRACTION FOR ALL INVOLVED. WE NEVER, EVER LOOK BACK AND SAY…”OUR WEDDING WAS NEGATIVELY AFFECTED BY 9/11”….SURE, WE WERE FORCED TO CANCEL OUR HONEYMOON IN EUROPE AND STAYED HOLED UP IN A CABIN ON THE LAKE WATCHING THE NEWS, WITH ANTHRAX SCARES AND TERRORIST THREATS. BUT WE WERE TOGETHER. WE WERE SAFE. WE WERE ALIVE. ALIVE UNLIKE THE NEARLY 3000 INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO WENT TO WORK ON THE MORNING OF SEPT 11, 2001…..BUT NEVER CAME HOME. YOU ARE THE REASON TODAY IS REMEMBERED. AND SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN OR REDUCED TO SOME REVISIONIST HISTORY. LET US NEVER FORGET THOSE WHO WERE LOST.
