Remembrance of Chaos

The first fireball had been seen early in the morning.
Then another.
More chaos and unbelief.

Frantic calls.
People running.
People glued to the TV.
Emergency vehicles everywhere.


A husband and father heard to say, “Let’s roll!”
Another, “…three of us are going to do something about it.”

More grief.

An eerie quiet fell upon the cities.
In a hush that had not happened since Kennedy died.

Rescue and hope began,
As silent tears fell for people unknown.

The world seemed in chaos now.
What to do? 
Where to go?
Are we safe?
Questions unanswered.

New world born.


This is my story written in response to the picture prompt given as above and for the new meme I found who's blog button is below.
The two people I mention in this story deserve to be recognized for their words and the heroism...Todd Beamer and Tom Burnette Jr. 
I wish to say that all those who perished that fateful day are never forgotten and you too are also heroes in my book.

  1. Honorable words. Gave me chills.

  2. yes, the world has changed forever, griping centus

  3. This was a stunning event that changed our world forever. I will never forget the feeling of being in a foreign country and seeing the second plane hit the tower. I was desperate to get home to Tucson, but could not. It was horrifying.

  4. I get chills even now as I read your words. Thanks for stopping by and welcome to Mrs. Jenny's Saturday Centus. Hope you keep coming back!

  5. Chill bumps! You have so accurately brought back that terrifying day and time... in only 100 words.

  6. Ah, yes, an apocalyptic slant to the prompt. Terrible times when this happened, not to be forgotten.

  7. oh and you brought tears to my eyes ...
    Welcome to the Centus ... I look forward to reading more of your entries.

  8. Deeply touching. Thanks...and glad to see your centus here!

  9. Naila!

    Oh my! I love the way you word craft...this was brilliant and spare and visual and heartwrenching...all at the same time!

    Thanks for joining us for Saturday Centus.
