As life goes on for some, for others there is still pain. I remember very clearly what I was doing on that very fateful day. I had just gotten out of bed to go get my toddler from her crib. We lived in a duplex at that time and it was quite silent that morning it was almost scary but just went about doing my normal everyday thing. Normally my daughter was wide awake at 7 in the morning but today she had slept in so I kind of took advantage of that by cleaning up a little. I didn’t really realize what was going on until I put my daughter in her saucer and turned on the t.v. Her normal programming wasn’t on so I sat down and watched what was happening. The shock and disbelief were overwhelming. The first tower had just been hit, at first it looked like it was just an accident, but then the 2nd plane hit. I felt my heart stop thinking the world was under attack. I couldn’t believe someone could do the unthinkable. All I could do was pray for those who lost their lives and for the families. For the next several days the news was filled with heartbreak and revelations. There were so many hero’s that day, the NYPD, the firefighters, and those who diverted the plane from heading to the White House. Of course those good samaritans who just wanted to be there to help in any way they could. There are just too many to say thank you to. It’s so sad to know that even more have died trying to save one another’s lives. The sacrifices that were given on that day as well. I know for me I will never forget anyone who was lost that day. 17 years have gone by so quickly and yet still just as painful for many. I thought today should be a remembrance of those lost and to say thank you to those who did all they could to save so many lives.
