10 years later


I remember this day so well, as everyone else does, as it changed our lives forever.
Even if we did not know someone in the Twin towers, the Pentagon, or a farm field in Pennsylvania, it has affected our lives. It started as just a regular work day for me. Before I left for work here in CA, the news events were just coming in on the TV. I heard more and more as I drove the 40 min. to work. Each report worst than the one before.
The shock and dis-belief was apparent to everyone.

How could this happen?
Why would someone do this?

The sadness of all the lives lost, the pain of all the families and friends who lost loved ones
and were left behind to carry on with out their fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, sisters, brothers or friends and co-workers.

But despite the tragedy, we as a country united, just as a family would unite.
You hurt one of us, you hurt all of us.

I am so thankful for those who stepped up that day to do their duty, who rushed into burning buildings as others rushed out. Who helped their neighbor, their co-worker, the total stranger on the street.

It showed the true spirit of our nation.

My only wish is.....
that unity, that cooperation would extend always,
beyond politics, beliefs, disagreements to make this truly
the greatest nation on earth.

  1. I too wish that that unity after 9/11 would remain always. The unity I felt and saw after 9/ll filled my heart with such pride.


I would love to hear from you!
