9/11


I will never forget this day.  

I remember talking on the phone with my mom while I was getting dressed.

Good Morning America was on the TV.

And I was frustrated because a job that I had interviewed for weeks ago still hadn't offered me the position.

They had called that morning letting me know that the paperwork was being pushed through but that it would be a week or so more before the official offer was made.

I was complaining about this and absent minded-ly staring at the TV.

There was smoke billowing from one of the Twin Towers.

They were saying something about a plane hitting it.

I stopped talking to listen and saw the second plane crash into the remaining Tower.

There was talk of terrorism...another hijacked plane...it all seemed to run together as my mind tried to wrap around what had just happened.

I could hear my boys, then just two and three, playing loudly in the other room.

My mom and I didn't speak another word but we couldn't hang up the phone either.

Time seemed to stand still.

I remember every single moment of that day as if it were yesterday.

And every single day since then,

I am thankful for our military, firefighters and every person involved in ensuring that our country is safe.

Thank you and God Bless!

Let us never forget....
