It's hard to believe that it's been 9 years since tragedy struck the world that one awful day. Our lives were forever changed and the after effects are still felt today.
Keeping with a positive theme, remember those that lost their lives and those that still struggle with the loss of loved ones.
Where were you on 9-11??
I was cooking breakfast. My family was visiting, so we had a house full, talking and laughing LOUDLY!!(You know how it is when family gets together and we haven't seen each other in a while) The TV was on mute, but the news was on. I was mixing batter for pancakes and watching what I though was a commercial for the "new" Wesley Snipes movie, Art Of War. If you've never seen it, you have to know the type, scaling bulidings, things blowing up everywhere. Anyway, I slowly realized that it was no commercial. I alerted the family, and for the first time all night, the room went completely silent. We had no words; none to describe, none to comfort. You see, we all have family members that live and work in New York. I got on the phone immediately and called my sister-in-law. My nephew answered and told me she was on her way to work. My heart sank, her trip to work would lead right through the mayhem. I won't go into the details of my frantic and frightened feelings at the time, let me just say that she was okay. Her bus had let them off on the bridge; she got covered in soot but no harm done. My family was spared that day, but so many others were not. I will pray for wisdom and understanding and hope that our futures will not be tainted and marred by such actions ever again.
