Tuesday Blog Hop: Remembering 9/11


Has it really been 8 years? I remember the day like it was last week. A beautiful September day in Iowa. It was just a usual busy weekday morning. I got the kids ready for school and drove them there. I didn't listen to the radio or TV in the morning. I was volunteering that morning so I walked into school with them. My good friend, Judy, saw me and said "Did you hear?" Hear what? She dragged me over to the TV in the teacher's room. As we watched, the second plane crashed into the Twin Towers. It was a surreal moment.

I went home and watched the coverage on TV. I wondered how something like this could happen and I cried for all the people who died. I was encouraged by how people helped each other. I was discouraged by the people who say that we brought this upon ourselves.

I hope that people continue to remember September 11, 2001. I will never forget.
