I remember like it was yesterday. In fact, every year that passes since that horrific day, I cannot believe any time has passed at all. It is still so fresh on the minds and in the hearts of us all. We have witnessed a major part of history which is still a big part of our country's life.
On September 11, 2001 I woke up with a heavy heart. I had recently suffered a miscarriage and was in an awful disagreement with my mother. Of course when my husband called me from work to tell me what was going on, my attention immediately shifted from my own worries to those of the world. I only had Adriana then and she happily busied herself while I sat dumbfounded in front of the television. It was a few hours before it dawned on me that I had friends and family to worry about. All the circuits were busy by that point, but I got my relief when in the evening hours I received phone calls that all those I knew were safe. Still, I could not forget about the many others that would be receiving the exact opposite news. And my heart broke for them.
I was not going to blog today. I felt like I didn't have it in me to reflect on this sad day, let alone write about it. But then I realized that the sooner I push it out of my mind and ignor it, the sooner I have forgotten those that lost/gave their lives as innocent bystanders, heroes, and victims, as well as those whose loved ones were taken away.
