9/11

I remember this day seven years ago. I was five months pregnant with Jarod. I remember we all woke-up and were just having a lazy morning. The TV and radio weren't on. I was just sitting on the couch relaxing when the phone rang. It was my brother. He asked if I knew what was going on? I said no is everything ok? Thinking something happened to him or our family. He told me to turn on the TV and we saw just after the second plane hit. I remember feeling shocked. I almost couldn't believe what I was seeing.

We all watched it in silence as I hung up from my brother.. Then it was cut to the Pentagon and I just started crying. All I could think about as all those people that had died and wondering what was going on. The news kept playing over and over again and I couldn't turn it off or turn it. I remember just feeling helpless that day.

I remember calling all my family and friends and telling them how much I loved them. I hugged hubby and Chord as much as I could that day. My heart and prayers still goes out to the families that lost loved ones that day and for the solders that have been lost since that day.

I still can't watch videos of the planes crashing into the towers or the Pentagon. If I do happen to catch a glimpse of it, it's like I am transported to that day and I cry all over again. I can't even began to imagine what the families went through or are going through even now seven years later. Every since then when my hubby (or anyone I love) goes out the door I am sure to tell them that I love him(them) and to be careful. This is one even that has changed my life even though I didn't know anyone who died that horrible day. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

I remember the day as vividly as if it were today. There are no words written that can adequately describe such a senseless loss of life. I knew someone who lost their brother. He left his job to go to NY to see if he could find him. Because he was away from his job and apartment, he lost both. I can't even begin to imagine the day without feeling such a great loss.

I remember the day well too... I was 8 months pregnant with Alicia... I was babysitting that day, and when my friend dropped off her baby, she told me about it (this was before the second plane hit the towers)... At first I thought it was just a small plane that accidently hit the tower, but then my SIL called me and told me as well, and told me how bad it was. Then I turned it on and watched all day long (and I normally hate having the TV on all day)... I was filled with such dread, and sadness... I can't remember doing anything else that day...
