I won't ever forget

September 11, 2001...a day that will forever be engraved on many thousands of hearts.

Almost everyone remembers exactly where they were, who they were with and what they were doing on that awful day 12 years ago.

The shock...the fear...the disbelief. That day seemed to last forever.  2,996 innocent lives wiped out senselessly.  The ripple effect touching thousands upon thousands of others all over the world.

I was home that day, having just returned from a trip to Las Vegas.  I flew home only hours before the chaos began.  I remember feeling so sick at the thought that it could have been us.

I couldn't stay away from the TV, but having a 2 year old and a 5 year old at home, I had to shield them from the unfolding horror.  I turned to my computer and reached out to my dear online friends through parentsplace.com.  They were such a blessing to me that day and in the days following.

It is such a vivid memory that it seems like it just happened yesterday, but it has been 12 years.

My thoughts and prayers are with every single person affected by this tragedy.  May we never, ever forget the countless heroes who gave everything they had that day...many made the ultimate sacrifice.

God bless you all. Pin It
