Never Forget...... 9/11

Never forget


{ }

I have so much to say about today and yet I sit here and I find myself typing so little.

Maybe it's all the emotions that bubble up inside when I think about where I was when IT all happened.

They say that you will never forget where you where or what you were doing that day...
 I sure won't, I was just 19 years old, my oldest child just 2 months old. I got a frantic phone call about 0630, yelling at me that "We are going to go to war. Life as we know it is all over now..." I'm not a morning person and it took me a bit to pull myself together and figure out what in the heck the frantic voice on the other end of the phone was screeching at me.
I remember stumbling out of bed, picking up our baby girl who by some miracle was still sleeping soundly. I sat in the rocking chair in the middle of the living room, turned on the t.v. and didn't move for the rest of the day, or so it seemed. I was in shock and stunned at the events that I saw playing out before me on the screen. I was sick that someone would want to do such a horrible, awful, inhumane thing to my people, my country.
 All because they have a different belief then what the majority of American's have, because we have freedoms they don't have and don't always understand.
So many died that day....
 and so many since then...
 Heroes .....

We are blessed today to have a couple extra kids with us for a couple of days while their parents are out of town, this morning as we said morning prayer before school it was a little different then normal. We asked for healing hearts over those that are still grieving, safety for those who are traveling, safety for our country,
We thanked God for Blessing us with such amazing people in our country that they would stand up and fight for our freedoms, we thanked God for our country...

It was hard not to choke up and to hold back the tears that wanted to fall so freely during our prayer, I made it, I was honestly proud of myself. And I was proud that my children never questioned why the 'extra' was put into the prayer because they understood.

Never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice 13 years ago today.
