Ten Years: Shilah Winslow Remembers

I know my parents were worried about me going off to war after the wake of 9'11 and rightly so, but I was an American and my brothers and sisters died that day, the least I could do was fight for them.

 

 

Sept.12.2011

Ten years ago, ten years ago yesterday my life changed like so many others, but it was then that I decided to enlist.  I had thought of it before but 9'll showed me this is what I needed to do.

I know my parents were worried about me going off to war after the wake of 9'11 and rightly so, but I was an American and my brothers and sisters died that day, the least I could do was fight for them.

In fact one of my dearest friends Corrine was supposed to be at work that day, on the eighty fifth floor of tower one.  I didnt know for hours whether or not she had made it out.  Later that day I found she had been running late due to a sick child and thankfully was not in the towers, but it was so close to comfort and she knew several that perished in those towers that day.

I lost my legs fighting but on 9'll nearly three thousand people lost their lives.

It was the least I could do, I will never forget 9'11 or the heros that emerged in the days that followed.

God Bless

Shilah Winslow

Shilah knows that it was the right thing to do, although it cost her both legs. Glad her friend was late so she didn't end up becoming another statistic of the 9/11/01 fatalities. Small blessings there. Well done, and I will never forget!

(((HGUS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :(
