MY MOM AND BROTHER DIED ON FLIGHT 587

Reader comment on item: Why Did American Airlines 587 Crash?

Submitted by CATHY RAMIREZ (United States), Feb 28, 2007 at 11:34

OK IT'S BEEN 5 YEARS SINCE THE CRASH, IT'S BEEN HELL FOR ME, ESPECIALLY GROWING UP DURING MY HIGH SCHOOL YEARS. KNOWING THAT MY MOM AND YOUNGER BROTHER WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND MY HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION. IT WAS HEART BROKEN FOR ME, TO ACTUALLY ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THEY ARE GONE.

THE FACT IS THAT BEFORE THAT SAME MORNING THAT THEY DIED, I WAS ARGUING WITH MY MOTHER, BECAUSE I WANTED TO GO SO BAD, I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY SHE DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE ME; EVERY YEAR WE WOULD GO TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, AND NOVEMBER 12, 2001, WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT SHE HAD EVER LEFT ME. YOU CAN BELIEVE IT, BOY WAS I TRUAMATIZED, ":BIG TIME:" I STARTED THINKING THAT IF I WOULD'VE GONE THAN, I WOULD'VE ALSO DIED. I KEPT ASKING MYSELF QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER, I WAS MY OWN PSYCOLOGIST. AND YET I DON'T KNOW WHAT TRULY HAPPENED. I HONESTLY DON'T THINK IT WAS A TERRORIST PLAN. SOMETIMES I JUST THINK THAT THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON. I GUESS IT WASN'T MY TIME TO GO. IF ANYONE HAS ANY COMMENTS ON WHAT I THINK, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AT Ucathy7@aol.com. my name is Cathy Ramirez. ok, i'm at work gotta go....
