Remembering 9/11

It's hard to believe that it has been six years since 9/11. I think everyone will always remember what they were doing at that exact moment when finding out the terrible news. I was feeding my daughter her cereal watching Good Morning America. I was in the shower when the first tower fell. My son was in afternoon pre school and I chose not to send him that day. My Dad and my sister were on there way to Georgia for my Brother in Laws graduation after his training in the Military. Right before joining the Army my sister remembers talking with Todd about her fears of him enlisting. He said it's not like we are at War. Then 9/11 happened. That changed EVERYTHING. If it were not for that day we probably would have never gone into Iraq and Todd might still be alive. I think of this day often that was the turning point of everything. Every year I watch all the specials on the 9/11 attacks, all the heroes that died that day. Now six years later I sit and I think about Todd, this is the reason he gave his life for our Country. How ironic my Mom and my Sister and niece are flying to Washington DC for another memorial service today of all days to honor Todd. They recovered the rest of his body and are going to lay him to rest there. They fly out this afternoon. Worry is starting to set in, not sure if it is about the flying or just them being so far away. So many people hurting inside today remembering their loved ones, mourning for America. We will never forget.

Lest We Forget.

I still get cold shivers throughout me when I think about 9/11...and I guess I always will. I watched the whole horrible event live on television...I was glued to my set, with tears flowing freely. Our world as we knew it, will never be the same again.
