This morning my husband and I sat together watching the news and reverently observed a minute of silence in reflection of the events of September 11, 2001. I remembered back to that morning eight years ago, I was sitting in my chair with my new baby in my arms, watching the news about an airplane that hit one of the Twin Towers. As I continued to watch, a second plane hit the remaining tower, and I remembered the horror I felt as I realized that America was under attack.
Today I am thinking about all the things we as Americans enjoy because we live in safety and freedom. May we never, ever forget the events of September 11, 2001. And may God bless America.
