Remember: 9/11 Photos

My wife and I were scheduled to fly on American Airlines from Oklahoma City to New York’s LaGuardia airport 9/12/2001 for a quick getaway to celebrate her birthday and our anniversary.

We had planned to leave on September 11th but when making our flight reservations in August we inexplicably decided to make our departure date one day later.

Why?

We can only wonder…

After the 9/11 attacks and having already experienced the Oklahoma City bombing, we knew flying to New York on September 12th, 2001 if not prohibited would be unwise and potentially dangerous and thus didn’t.

In years past on trips to New York we had dined at Windows on the World atop the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

My wife and I had eaten there several times and had even taken our seven year old son there on our last trip to New York before 9/11.

We didn’t make it to the restaurant until after 9:00 PM and my son was so tired when we got there, he slept through most of dinner.

He doesn’t even remember being there…

However for my wife and I, dining at Windows on the World with our son will always be an unforgettable experience.

Neither she or I will ever forget our last trip to the World Trade Center and the dinner we shared at Windows on the World with our son.
