My personal photos from September 11, 2001

I have never shared my personal photos from September 11, 2001. My heart is breaking as tears fall from my face as I look at them today. Everywhere we went there were posters looking for loved ones. Today I would like to share some of my picture with you. NEVER FORGET.

    Truly heartbreaking! I remember sitting in my History class when a teacher came in and turned the TV on. I was 15 years old. I live in the Isle of Man, UK but the pain I felt for all those people was incredible! Ill never forget that day.
    Jill, thanks for sharing your personal pictures.
    All the best!

    Thank you for sharing these heartwarming pictures, I cannot imagine living in that area when this happened.Here 13 years later and it feels like yesterday. I have been glued to the tv all day hearing the stories again and again, glued to my chair! Again thank you for sharing. Please come back on tv with some show, you were my favorite housewife and the show is terrible to watch. By the way, your new hairstyle makes you look 20 younger. Hope Bobby and Ali are doing ok…. I miss seeing all of you❤️

    Thank you for sharing. I watched everything from in front of my TV screen. I can’t imagine how it was to be there, right in the midst of it. May your heart continue to mend. When something like that happens…it changes us. We are in control of how that change presents itself. Thank you for always being an inspiration and for the joy you share with others. I always enjoyed you on RHONYC – you always seemed so down to earth. God bless you!!

    No one should ever forget what happened to all the innocent. Today we call it collateral damage, so sad. I was under the second plane as hit the WTC. Horrific,still can’t handle the drone of planes overhead. Peace be with you.

    Thank you for sharing these touching photographs Jill. Absolutely made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. G-d bless you and your family.

    Thank you for sharing! I found out August 28th I was pregnant after 8 months of infertility then 9/11 happened and I thought I was crazy for bringing a child into this world. My children have never known life without war. I now have CHF and have learned to cherish every moment as they are so precious. My meds mess with my memory but I remember 9/11 clearly. I often wonder about the women that were pregnant and the father was a victim, our heroes and how the survivors are today.

    Oh my God. I have somee pictures too but definitely not this close. Thank you for sharing Jill. Brings tears to my eyes.

    Thank you for reminding me what that day & time was like. When you loose
    Loved ones it feels like people seem to forget the lives of people who
    Made the biggest impact in our lives. I know you have a big heart Jill, & it’s very
    Real when I look at pics of some of my Moms last days battling her Cancer , when you took her for a pedicure. I hope everyone realizes what a genuine
    Humanitarian you truly are
