10 years ago (in memory of September 11th)

Saturday, September 10, 2011

Ten years ago today, there were hardly any security checks in airoports or in government building (compared to now). We didn't know the terms First Responder, 9/11, Ground Zero, Twin Towers, WTC, Al Queda, or Osama Bin Laden. We didn't worry about travelling. We didn't worry about anthrax, or shoe bombs. There were nearly 3,000 people and their families who were just going about their days, living their lives. There wasn't a hole in the Pentagon. There wasn't a gaping hole full of wreckage in the Pennsylvania filed. The twin towers were still standing and a very visible part of the New York skyline. And, 10 years ago today, tomorrow had the promise of being a normal day-- but it proved to be a day that changed the world. A day that changed history. A day that changed all of us.

Ten years ago on September 10th we went to bed feeling safe. The next morning that all changed. Don't forget those who died that day, as well as all who have served in our military to protect our freedoms, both before, and especially since!

God Bless us all! God Bless America! These colors don't run!

    Thank you for this very moving blog. I don't think I will ever forget where I was when I heard the first tower was hit. I know I will never forget where I was when the second tower was hit.

    My heart goes out to all the survivors and the families of the ones lost.
