Good morning everyone... I can't believe that today marks the 10th year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks... I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was in college at the time, and I still lived at home with my parents. My sister came in to my room and started shaking me and told me I needed to come watch the news. My mom and sister had watched the second plane hit on live television. I had to get ready for my morning class, but I remember not even wanting to tear myself away from the television... I ended up going to class, and my instructor told us we didn't have to stay, but we could if we wanted to talk about what was going on. I stayed for a little while, then I drove home to watch more of the news... I went to work that day (in an after school program with first graders), and I just kept looking at the sky and thinking about all of the horrible things happening right here in our own country... The kids wanted to talk about what was going on, and I found it hard to discuss this with first graders. I didn't know how to word things, or how to explain it to them... There was a candle light vigil held in our local Veteran's Park that night and I remember just standing there and crying... I know I will never forget that day, and I will continue to remember the people who lost their lives, lost loved ones, and the men and women who continue to fight for our country so that we can keep our freedom!
