Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. We all remember the scenes from that horrific day, but they are especially fresh on the minds of people who saw the destruction first hand.
Nancy Anson spent three weeks at ground zero after 9/11 for the Red Cross. Even though she has tried to forget the horrific scene, she says it was worse than any picture she has seen from a war zone.
September 11th 2001 is a day that changed our country forever. "Just to be remembering some of the things, it is very painful, it really is, it is very very painful," says Dr. Nancy Anson, Red Cross Volunteer.
Anson has a more personal connection to the 9/11 attacks than most of us. "I put it in a nice little place in my mind and close the door, and I do not open that drawer very often," says Anson.
But a decade later all of the painful memories come back. "It was a devastating site, I have seen pictures of World War II and it was as bad, if not worse than pictures of World War II, it was fiery, it was smokey, it was burning, twisted steel wreckage," says Anson.
Anson spent three weeks volunteering with the Red Cross at ground zero.
"I have worked other crisis situations like hurricanes, but it was nothing like this," says Anson.
She spent her time counseling victims after the attack, listening to their stories.
"They lost their best friends, they lost their brothers, their fathers, they lost their comrades," says Anson.
It was her job to take the burden off of these firemen and police officers who were pulling bodies out of the wreckage.
"For some of the people I met and dealt with, I think this is going to be an extremely difficult, every year is extremely difficult, but especially 10 years," says Anson.
And after 10 years, she has been back to New York City several times, but she still avoids the site where so many lost their lives.
Even though she has tried to forget, memories of that horrific day will never go away.
Dr. Anson says the day Osama Bin Laden was killed was the closest thing to closure as many people will get.
