September 11, 2001

Do you remember where you were when you heard the news that the World Trade Center Towers had been hit? I do. My daughter had just started her first day of "pre-school". She was three years old and I remember thinking our lives will change. I drove by my sons elementary school just to visually see it standing in one piece and realize that while my kids were safe so many lost parents and family members that day. We have a family friend who is over in Iraq in order to protect the lives of innocent victims and while I wait for his safe return I pray for everyone in our country along with our leaders to protect us and bring our troops home safely.

I was in Germany. It was my first day alone with Matthew. Sam just left for the field. It was afternoon for me and I saw it on the tv. I thought it was a movie. I totally lost it when I realized it was real. The base locked down. Talk of flying us family members out was going around. I didn't know if Sam was safe or not until the next day. I couldn't even get off base to get to Matthew's dr. appt.
Not a fun day for anyone....still so sad for those who lost loved ones.
