never forgetting

i have much to say, my heart overflows, but the words will not come. the tears course down my face as the feelings from eight years ago are still so raw and real.
our lives changed forever on september 11, 2001.
our innocence shattered. our safety threatened. our freedom challenged.
i was at work, and spent the day in front of our television. i waited until school was dismissed and picked up bama girl, and tried to answer the questions she had as her teacher did not share what had happened because of the wide age range at the elementary school.
how do you answer "why mommy?"
then across town, i picked up boy wonder and tried to help him process all the visuals he saw throughout the day.
how do you begin to understand?

where were you eight years ago?

let us never forget how we felt after the attack. the unity. the pride. the feeling that we will prevail and will not be crushed by our oppressors. remember this. we are AMERICA. the land of the FREE. the BRAVE. stand up for what we hold dear. she is worth fighting for.

  1. I can't believe it's been 8 years. I'm so thankful that our military has kept us safe since then. I pray for them and ask God to give them all they stand in need of to be away from their families and do the tough job they must do every day for us.

  3. My dad called me before I went to work. I couldn't turn away. But I had to go to work. I was working for DCFS at the time, and I remember sitting in the courthouse, waiting for my hearing to start. It was so depressing.
