3 Things Thursday {Week 24}

No three things today, just one – 9/11.


I’m pretty sure everyone remembers what they were doing and where they were that September morning in 2001. I was in American History class. The TV’s were on for a while as we tried to understand what was happening. Soon our teachers were requested to turn them off in fear of desensitizing us. That was 13 years ago.

Every year as the date approaches I promise myself I will keep the TV off, not watch the countless documentaries running on TV or read the various conspiracy stories floating around the web.  Of course, I end up watching, reading and am reminded of the madness that surrounded the day thirteen years ago. I hope and pray our daughter doesn’t have to experience such hate and such sadness  in her lifetime.

Three years later on 9/11 in 2004 my maternal grandfather also passed away. Suffice it to say 9/11 is a day I will never forget.

Sending love & prayers to those who lost their loved ones on 9/11.
