Where Were You When 9/11 Happened?

Gosh, it is hard to believe that it has been 18 years since the events on Tuesday, September 11, 2001 happened. It still feels like yesterday.

Do you remember where you were or what  you were doing when the first Tower was hit at the World Trade Center? I can tell you the exact placement of my right front tire when I heard the news on the radio. I can still hear the radio personality exclaim, “The Twin Towers has been hit!” I can tell you every prayer I prayed, every thought I had, and every fear I felt.

Like so many people, my cousin lost her husband that day. So many stories were told of those who were in the Towers who normally aren’t there and of so many people who were supposed to be there that day but wasn’t.

We will never forget and I pray for all those who were affected by those attacks, even to this day. May God bless America.

I just want to wish you all a Happy Memorial Day and to thank all those men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms. We often forget that freedom comes at a high price. Thus, mo matter your plans for today, please don’t forget to take a few minutes to remember what Memorial Day is all about and to say a little prayer for all those who are Missing in Action or Prisoners of War.
