Because the events of September 11, 2001 were so tragic and shocking, it’s natural that people look back and try to find meaning in it, or a sign they missed. Grief affects people in weird ways, and as long as it’s not a dangerous way to find solace, then really you should do whatever works. This is a non-judgmental way of saying that lots of people who lost loved ones on 9/11 are convinced there is spooky, unexplainable stuff relating to their loved ones’ deaths.
According to ABC News, Bonnie McEneaney’s eerie story of losing her husband starts before 9/11, though, because he had multiple premonitions about what was coming. Eamon McEneaney was a star lacrosse player in his college years, per U.S.A. Lacrosse Magazine, a “three-time first-team All-American” who led Cornell to two national championships, and was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1993.
McEneaney entered the corporate world and got a job with a company located in the World Trade Center. On September 2, 2001, at a barbeque, he suddenly started talking in detail about what he’d do if the towers were hit by a terrorist attack again. (Osama bin Laden had orchestrated an attack in 1993.) Then a few nights later, his wife recalled, “I was cooking, he walked in and he said, ‘You had better become more of a disciplinarian with the children because when I’m gone it’s going to be hard.'” A few days later, McEneaney perished along with almost 3,000 others.
