I will never forget that day as I was home drinking my coffee and people in Cafemom were posting endless chats about the World Trade Tower. I remember turning on the television to see that the tower was hit and burning. After watching the second plane hit I froze in fear wondering if I should fetch my daughter from school. I watched the devastation from home as the towers crumbled to the ground then the aftermath of dust, smoke, and debris.
When I think about 9/11 I think of how we are blessed to live in a free country. I think how the world still struggles with so much anger and hatred. I still wonder today if peace will ever be a part of our world. This tragedy along with many others are reminders we live in an unpredictable place on this earth. I hope I never have to witness something like this again.
