Its September 11th which means today I remember. I remember sitting in the band office getting the phone call to turn on the news NOW. I was a senior and the images of the plane flying into the tower floored me. We all thought it was a tragic accident and then the second plane flew into view. We knew then it was bad.
I live in metro-Atlanta so we are near the CDC. Many kids I went to high school with had family in New York, as did I, and at the CDC. Talks were of the CDC being hit next and people were crying, upset, scared. We were a bunch of 17 & 18 year old’s facing reality that our world, the one we were headed out into in just a few short months was NOT as safe and welcoming as we had grown up with. It has been 11 years now and I never forget the people trapped & scared, the families who could watch the t.v. in horror praying their loved one got out, and the people who ran TOWARDS those planes and buildings. I cannot forget the troops who even now serve us overseas and the sacrifices they and their families make each and every day. So please stop today and think and pause before giving thanks. For we are here and so very many are not.
Today its also time for our weekly archive link party. I don’t know about y’all but I have some old posts that could always use a little love so that’s why I’m helping host this fun party.
