THAT day... 9/11... 12 years ago... my girls were 7 & 9... getting ready for school & work... the TV was on, which was not a normal thing when trying to get somewhere on time... and as I walked from my bathroom to the kitchen to refill my coffee cup, I happened to glance at the screen at the moment the jet hit the second tower! OMG! My skin became covered with goose bumps, just as it is right now as I type this out, my jaw dropped, and then I had to sit down... "This can't be real!!" was my first thought.... then the tears came. The girls came running in to see why I was watching TV in the morning and they saw it.... I had to explain the best I could, but I didn't even know myself yet. Those images are stuck in my brain and will NEVER be forgotten. I prayed for those lost in that tragedy, for the families & friends who lost someone, and for the safety of our Responders and Nation. emoticon
It is really sad how that incident caused our Nation to become paranoid, waiting for the "next" time....
