Of course, no one needs to be reminded of what today's date means. 9/11 was the worst terroristic attack on US soil EVER. I think 9/11 is one of those days in which you don't forget where your were or what you were doing when you heard the news. In my lifetime, besides 9/11, I remember where I was when the Challenger burst into flames (watching it on TV in elementary school) and the Oklahoma City bombing.
For me, Sept. 11, 2001 will forever be ingrained in my memory, as the world stood still that day. I remember being at work (I did work in the "real world" for seven years before I had Evan). One of my employees called to tell me, "A plane just crashed into the World Trade Center." I was shocked. I worked in the telecommunications industry and there was a huge room on our floor with gigantic television screens that were used by the engineers. I ran to that room and they had on the news. The room was dark and there were the horrific sights on the big screens. I just couldn't believe it. It's still hard to believe something like that could happen here...in the United States of America! Every year, especially on 9/11, is another reminder to me how privileged I am live here, all the blessings that come with being an American, and the huge sacrifice our men and women in uniform are making to ensure the freedom of my children.So, where were you when you heard this terrible news?
