9-11....Remember


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.


Peace and blessings to our soldiers, then and now. We will never forget.
