Remembering 9/11

My goodness, hard to believe that its been 11 years today since the tragedy.
 
My heart, thoughts and prayers are with all those that was involved in the tragedy, whether they were there living it, near it, had someone there, lost someone there...to everyone...all the heroes and those that sacrificed for others...Thank you...We will Never Forget.
 
Where were you when this tragedy happened?? I was at home with 2 toddlers and 2 in school and I remember having the television on while doing chores around the house and all of a sudden I hear something about breaking news and stand there and see smoke on the tv...everywhere smoke!! They were talking and showing one of the towers and then a few minutes later I saw the 2nd one hit and then tumble down soon after...I was standing in shock...couldn't believe my eyes of what was happening..hoping it was just a mistake that surely nothing that horrible could be happening...
 
I, like many of you I'm sure kept watching and listening to the news..hearing the stories both good and sad..the good that escaped the sad that didn't make it out the ones that sacrificed thereselves for others. The ones that were running to it instead of running away from it.. So many stories were shared...
 
I kept watching the news for awhile and crying and still not believing that it was actually going on....
 
I hugged my 2 kids that were so little then..I hugged them tight and cried with them in my arms just so thankful we were safe and sound and when the other 2 got home I held them and hugged them and cried for all those lost...
 
What doesn't kill us makes us stronger...that day/event has definitely made me stronger..still took some time but its made me stronger in a number of ways.
 
Life if too short to not go out there and go after what you want and your dreams. Fight for things and people that you want in your life. Fight for your dreams..
