Tomorrow marks the 12th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001.
And outside of New York and Washington, D.C. no place may have been scarier that day than inside America's airports.
None of us can ever forget where we were on Sept. 11, 2001. Now, 12 years later, one area resident remembers where she was on that fateful September Day.
Amy Myers, who now lives in Eagle Lake, went to work at the Phoenix airport the morning of September 11.
Twelve years later, she recalls the feelings of a day we will all never forget.
Amy Myers says, "Still sad. I remember. I can still feel how scary it was going to the airport that day. The fear of the unknown. Just being so shocked that every day there's thousands of people at the airport and to be so empty. I could've screamed and I would not have seen anybody."
It was two days later when flights resumed, and Myers recalls the tense moments in making sure another attack didn't happen.
Myers says, "I was running on pure adrenaline. Once I came to the back of the plane, they had told me to check, I think it was 15b because that's the one that the flight attendant was suspicious of. I was supposed to go all the way to the back before I made any indication whether it was him or not, to the back on the plane in the galley. I said, it's not him and they said well, let's go over it one more time on your way out check again. So I went back through and carefully looked and didn't see him, so I left and I told them on the jet bridge it wasn't him and immediately I started to cry."
Fast forward to today and Myers, like the rest of us, sees a world that is forever changed.
Myers says, "There's a bit more security, maybe we're not as trusting as we used to be or naïve, if that's the word. I guess for me it's that I'm proud to be an American. I hope we don't forget that feeling."
And while they may have shaken the foundations of our tallest buildings, even 12 years later, they have not shaken the American resolve.
