On this day

I vaguely remember this day 11 years ago.  I was in junior high and barely understood what was going on.  I remember I had a fundraiser I was doing for choir and I was going door to door trying to sell.... something.  I remember seeing it on tv at school and at my home.  I remember my mom not being able to tear her eyes away and how she had her hand over her mouth.  I didn't understand it but that day has stayed with me.  As I have gotten older, I learn more and more about this day and my prayers go out to the people who were affected and to the families who lost a loved one.  I cannot even begin to comprehend what that must have been like.  My heart aches for them.  I believe though that families are forever and they will be reunited again.

God bless you all

I am proud to be an American.
